I have some great personal news to share with you! Othman and I have been together for twenty years and have decided to get married! Our big day is 15th June 2019 – just 10 days to go! It has almost been stress-free but I am beginning to feel the pressure now. I have decided to put everything on the back burner and concentrate on the final details of our wedding! I won’t be disappearing altotogether, because I have the swaps I told you about yesterday, and I’m taking part in my first ever blog hop on Friday. I hoping that I’ll still be able to produce my Sunday videos. We will have a honeymoon in September when we go to Hong Kong for ten days. Three weeks after the wedding we’re going on the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Incentive Trip which is a cruise round the Greek Islands. All in all, a very special year for us both!Today I’m sharing my Wedding Invitation and Save the Date card with you. The finished size of my invitations is 6″ x 6″. I used the Shimmery White Cardstock (CS) which is standard A4 size, i.e. 8.25″ x 11.59″. To achieve the 12″, I scored the cardstock at 6″ and added the extra length with the Glimmer Paper! The leafy edged die is from the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies, which have since retired. I used the cake, cake stand and Mr & Mrs stamps from the Piece of Cake Stamp Set and matching Cake Builder Punch. It doesn’t show in the photographs but all the images were heat-embossed in silver – unfortunately, they look black!I adhered the images either with Tombow or Dimensionals to an oval I had die cut using the Layering Oval Stitched Framelits Dies. I layered this onto a die cut scalloped oval in Sparkle Glimmer Paper. When I originally scored my cardstock at 6″, I also scored it at 6.5″. I did this because I needed to put four pages inside the invitation, and needed to adhere the first half inch down securely so the pages didn’t come out! To keep the invitation looking “balanced” I added a half inch strip of Glimmer Paper. I have previously made wedding invitations for several brides, but I think this is the first time I haven’t used Vellum as an overlay on the front!To create the Save the Date Cards, I started with a base of Galvanised Metallic Paper, which was available in the Christmas 2018 Catalogue. I didn’t have enough of this cardstock to make all the Save the Date cards, so I used some Brushed Siver CS that SU used to sell seven or eight years ago! The two cardstocks were amazingly similar! For the rest of my design I used the Shimmery White A4 cardstock. The flowers in the top left-hand corner and the bottom right-hand corner were in the Petals & More dies which retired on 3rd June 2019. The label die is from the Stitch Seasons Dies which were only available for one month – last November, I think! Finally, I’d like to share the second page of our invitation with you. I don’t know if this is a global thing, but in the UK, if the couple don’t have a wedding list, they may request donations for an expensive item they can’t afford to buy themselves, or maybe contributions towards their honeymoon. In that case, it can help you even at Klonopin Online lower doses. Othman and I are very fortunate, and don’t need anything, so this poem was ideal!That’s it from me today. I will pop in with any important updates from Stampin’ Up! or if I have some spare time on my hands. Please rest assured, normal service will be resumed soon! LOL. In the meantime, happy crafting!
