Wedding invites rank at the top of my "Favorite Things to Design" list. I was thrilled when Laura, my future sister-in-law, and my brother asked me to design theirs. Laura's favorite color is purple and her wedding colors are navy, deep plum and a lighter blue. When we first discussed the design, she knew she wanted a folio inner envelope and she wanted a tree stamped on it. So, our first obstacle was finding a pretty tree stamp. After a little looking, we came across tree stamp in the Thoughts and Prayers set by Stampin' Up. Laura thought it was perfect!
The most time consuming part of the process came when the designing and printing was all done. I addressed my brother's portion of the invitations. It's been a while since I've done that! I'd forgotten how much work hand-addressing invitations is. (I love it though!) I used the last of the ink in my favorite pen. (THE BEST pen in the world. I used to be a Pilot P-700 lover, but my loyalties have changed. I'm now obsessed with this Japanese(?) Envelope Address Writing pen, also by Pilot. My mom said she would buy me some replacements in payment for addressing the invitations. Ha! That's a pretty good family discount!)
