A sneak peek at a few of the details in our invitations. A full reveal coming up soon!
|Lindsey and Ashley cutting strips of paper for the squares on the front of the invites!|
|My mom working hard to get the small green squares stuck on the larger emerald/teal squares!|
|I used my Cricut to cut out Rs. I went through a few different font choices, but ultimately decided on George. We used the R, but bolded to give it a little more width.|
|The finished product! The Rs gave my sister so much grief. I think these really made the invites, though. Otherwise, it would just be a blank pocketfold on the front!|
Another element that made the printed part of the invite stand out was the matting behind it. I chose to buy them pre-cut from Cards & Pockets instead of cutting them myself. It amounted to about $.17 per invite, but I think it was worth it.
|Lindsey lining up the mats and sticking them with photo mounting squares! I think we went though about 7 boxes of squares throughout the process of invite construction.|
|The finished pocketfold, just waiting for inserts and an invitation!|
Tomorrow, I'll walk you through the entire invitation :) I'm pretty pleased with them, and SO grateful for all the help from family members!
