Wedding Invitation

Check out this invitation that I made for my friend.  Let me tell you, that is a labor of love.  There are so many small pieces when you have to make 160 of these babies.  My fingers are still sore from pressing down on the stamp multiple times on each invite.  Luckily my friend's daughter came to help.  She stayed for the entire day to help me finish these invitations.

Making of these invitations is definitely easier with the new Simply Scored score board.  That was probably the easiest part of this whole process. :)
 Look at this inside.  I'm so proud of myself for having designed this.  We embossed the Very Vanilla piece with Elegant Lines embossing folder.  Then layered a piece of vellum on top to soften the embossed lines.  The invitation itself is printed on the vellum.  The ink from the printer took forever to dry, so I decided to pour some clear embossing powder on top and heat emboss the vellum.  That was an ingenious touch, I thought!  The invitation looks so elegant with both dry and wet embossing!  I just loved it.
