Here's A Look At My Handy Work

Over the last 6 weeks, I have created about 8 different mock ups for the bride who every so graciously decided to hire me to hand create her bridal invitations for her autumn wedding.
I was thrilled. I was so honored. Truth be known, I was terrified!
That soon passed after 4 trips to the big box store, Archivers.
I even took a class for some helpful hints, but honestly, I didn't learn anything other than
you will pay a premium price on 5 x 5 envelopes and the other very important thing
was that they offer printing templates on their web site.
Thank you for that!

This design is a very trendy tri fold pocket invitation. We incorporated
the colors from the wedding so the invitations will make a statement
about the wedding.
The pocket design allows the bride to include just about anything on the three
cards in the pocket. RSVP, of course. This can be mailed just like a postcard.
Event Plans, Directions, Accommodations, etc be used to provide the guests
with other very useful information.
Note the tiny crystals that embellish the pocket. We plan on using them
also on the pocket cards.
So, what do you think?
Be kind!
I don't want to cry!!!
