Our Handmade Wedding Invitation, Finished and Sent.....

From the stamp on the front, the seal on the back, to the inside of the invitation, hopefully those invited will get a feeling of the wedding they will be attending! Because I would have to place three stamps on the front, I decided to special orders our stamps from stamps. com. When you order sizeable amount the price comes down extremely.
Because we decided to use the tri-fold without the outside envelope (with everything that we were doing it would not fit properly) we had to create a seal to place on the back to hold the invitation together. With all of the digital scrapbooking images we were again able to give hints about the wedding..... Can you guess anything by our seal?
Then the inside.... Pearls, inking, dmc floss, machine sewing all adorn the invitation. Also, by using a postcard we were able to save in postage. All of this was created using one of my computer programs and sitting hours to add the personal touches!

Just a little fancy for those invited to the wedding.

Machine stitching and pearls accent the invite.
So..... By the invite what can you imagine at the wedding??
