Wedding Invitations Video Tutorial!

I just love this elegant wedding invitation. It was so easy to make! These invites measure 5x6 inches. Customize your invites with your wedding colors easily by substituting the grey and sorbet cardstock for your colors!

What you need: 

Two colors of cardstock to match your wedding palette 
2 matching inks for cardstock (I recommend cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, Stampin Up, Close to my Heart or anywhere with matching inks!)
Black Ink
So Suzy Stamps: From This Day Forward & Wedding Dress
Paper Trimmer
An old book with yellowing pages
An Acrylic Block or CD case
Computer (Microsoft Office or Pages)
Envelope Punch Board (optional) - you can also buy envelopes to save time and stamp them!

Keep everything together with this wrap around! Thinking back, I probably would use the cream colored cardstock like on the inside of the invitation for the center square.

The inside can be easily customized using a computer. I created a very light rectangle that measured 4 3/4' x 5 3/4' and found a matching colour to match the sorbet and slate cardstock so it all blended nicely. 
Here I did some tone on tone stamping - which means I stamped in the same colour as the cardstock. That wedding dress stamp is just so versatile!

I created these hilarious mock invitations to show what you need. I created each card about an inch bigger than the other so they would stack nicely. I also stamped the bottom with the Wedding Dress Stamp using Sorbet ink, white matched my title!

Another close up!

I made this envelope in the video. You can always buy/order envelopes in the size you need and save time. I needed a 9x9 piece of paper to make these envelopes and I used the envelope punch board to make them. Customize your envelopes with some stamping using the bottom of the Wedding Dress Stamp!

Here is a video tutorial where I show you how to make all this!
