October Wedding Invitations



Katie and Matt's October wedding invitations were so much fun to create. They chose autumn colors of gold, artichoke, more mustard and Cajun craze. The folders were purchased but all other products are from Stampin' Up!

The invitations are 6x6 with an artichoke mat and vanilla center. The stamp set is French Foliage. I used gold embossing powder on VersaMark Ink to create the leaves on the belly band and inside invitation. Directions, hotel information, reception card, reply card and envelope were all stacked at different heights in the right pocket.

Assembling took a few nights with the bride, matron-of-honor and mother of the bride in the assembly line, but it was a lot of fun! Katie and her mom, Cindy, cut out over 225 leaves for the belly bands!

I can't wait to see it all come together in a few weeks!
