As promised......

Finally got all 80 of these suckers done! Phew! I will be getting the RSVP postcards from the printers on Wednesday, then I can ship it all out to her back in Canada.

Then, I have until July 15th to get all the thank-you cards and wedding favours done so I can take them over in my suitcase! Talk about sisterly love!

The size is 6x6, and it is done in a pocket style. I cut an angle along the front so the daisy shows nicely.

Stamped in versamark and embossed the swirly stamp from Baroque Motifs with clear embossing powder, then folded the card front over and adhered to create the pocket. Believe me, that took lots of adhesive! 80 invites, 10" of adhesive per pocket, plus the insert part was about another 4". I need to find a good adhesive that does not cost an arm and a leg!

Anyways - the insert is just a piece of 5.5" square wild wasabi with a 5.25" square white card stock with the details of the wedding printed on it. Attached the daisy in the top right with a yellow center and a silver brad.

Tied some stitched wild wasabi around the card, and used the ticket punch with the 1" circle punch for the "happily ever after" sentiment. I punched two slots on the ends of the ticket punch so I could thread the ribbon through it, then tied around the card.

Voila done!

I really hope she likes!

Love you lots baby sis!

sorry for being MIA for so long

But here are some cards to make up for it!

The first, a no layers card, is possiably my favorite card I have made to date.

The next, is a card that quite surprised me. This spots set came with my starter kit, and I was not sure if I liked it or not. However, I have to say, this card has completly changed my mind!

And finally, a simple card using some of the wide chocolate chip grosgrain.

I hope you enjoy, and I will post pictures of my sisters wedding invitations on Sunday after a wild weekend of making 80 wedding invitations!
