Wedding Invitations and Envelopes

I'm finally done! Everyone (except perhaps Ted's relatives in Japan) should have received their invitations by now, so I am free to post the pictures. This design was borrowed from Kathy Beymer's (of brilliant poppy wedding invitation and stitched envelopes. Thank you Kathy!

Ted and I decided to base the invitation on our wedding palette of lime green, gray, and peony pink. We ordered the fabric from Japan and printed the cards with our home computer. Because the pattern of the fabric consists of different sizes of multi-colored blossoms, when I cut out the flowers to applique on the cards, each invitation was individual. It was such a fun process, and I'm so proud to say that I actually made my own wedding (reception) invitations! We wish you could all be with us on our wedding day, but we'll try to bring a bit of the Caribbean to Missouri on that day!

Green Day

I haven't updated this in awhile because I've been busy making my wedding reception invitations (I'll post these soon). But in the meantime, here's a picture of some business cards I just designed and made with my computer and a watermark stamp and embosser. I can't decide which color combination I like better...Now I just have to distribute them!

And of course I couldn't resist including a picture of our baby, Thomas (we're adopting him, by the way). I made him a green "T" pillow, which amazingly is the only stuffed thing that he hasn't torn to shreds (we've already lost a stuffed squirrel, a ball, and a toy dog). I think he knows it was made just for him!
