He's Getting Married

Yes, that's right.  My youngest son, Phillip got himself engaged last week.  The wedding is planned to be a low-key affair at the beach with just a few family and friends on AUGUST 6th.  Yes, in less than 6 weeks!

Consequently, everyone pitched in to make the invitations this weekend.  My son and I arranged everything on the computer and printed what we needed.  My husband cut everything out.  The bride-to-be distressed the edges and tied the bows.  My son glued everything down and I ran the Cuttlebug embossing all the parts.  Here is what we came up with.....

Here is the inside with the invitation part.  The flourish is from Technique Tuesday.

All the envelopes were distressed and a flourish added.  The bride hand wrote the addresses.

We included an RSVP card and directions to the beach.
Once we figured out what the bride and groom wanted, and found all the parts the rest was easy.  With every one's help we completed 40 invitations in just 3 1/5 hours.  Whew!!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Technique Tuesday Fanfare
CS and Papers: Bazzill and printer paper
Ink: Distress Vintage Photo
Access. and Embellishments: Hemp, Cuttlebug folder

As an active blogger you must excuse the need to enter the invitation into a few challenges:

Have a great day!
