So I've FINALLY got around to sharing the wedding invites I made for close friends of ours a couple of months ago. It was a HUGE project and took up a lot of time when I was working on them. I had shared little tidbits here and there on my Instagram and Facebook page and got a bazillion requests to share all the info.
As I mention in the video I didn't originally film (or even photograph) the original set of invites I made - I ended up being so tired after it all that once they were done I packed 'em up and gave them to my friends for them to mail out and that was it. THEN they needed me to make more so I ended up filming and photographing this (much smaller) batch so I can finally share them all with y'all.
Other than the Whip Cream card stock mat the entire card front was composed of die cuts. I spent DAYS running card stock through the machine - it was definitely the most time consuming part of the process.
Other than the silver glitter paper (that I got from Michaels - it's their Recollections brand) all the card stock I used is from MFT. Their card stock is a true heavyweight card stock and I refuse to use cheaper/lighter card stock - not just for wedding invites but all my card making. I can always tell the difference when looking at it let alone the feel of it - the better quality always stands out!
I designed the inside with all the info in Photoshop. Sorry I don't share that in the video (don't even know how to do that), and I didn't take note of which fonts I used either. I'm pretty sure they were all purchased fonts - especially the script one. I used white out on all the personal info - the real invites are much cleaner of course ;).
I stamped snowflakes with silver ink onto the insides and on the envelopes as well - in real life they have such a nice shimmer and it ties it all together with the die cut snowflakes on the front.
To see how these came together along with a bunch of tips on how I handle mass producing (especially on this sort of scale - altogether I made 235 of these) check out my video below:
