Wedding Wishes

Congratulations to my daughter and her fiancĂ© who were married this weekend!  For a wedding card, I decided to "alter" their invitation.  This is a way to use your CTMH supplies along with other products to create something personal and unique. 

In order to turn their invitation into a congratulations card for them, I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut the "Mr & Mrs" from Colonial White cardstock.  This was added to a piece of Vellum using 3-D Foam Tape which was placed over the top of the invitation.  This creates a subdued look, while preserving the original.  

Using images from the Wedding Wishes stamp set, I created panels to cover both the Reply and the Details card which had been included in the side pocket.  Some ShinHan Touch Twin markers were used to add additional color, and some Foil Tape and Glitter Gems add a bit of sparkle and sheen.  Initially, I thought that I would just create some new inserts for the pocket, but the decided that it would be nice to be able to see the foliage that was originally printed so just added a stamped panel to the top of each of the insert cards.  

This is a photo of the "unaltered" invitation.  We purchased the bi-fold pocket folders and some custom printables from an Etsy shop to print everything at home.  To complete and finish each invitation, some CTMH colored cardstock was used along with vellum and Glitter Paper to add some pizzazz.  The pocket contained the Reply card, a Details card, and a stamped addressed envelope for the Reply to be returned.  For members of the wedding party who were invited to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, there was an additional card in the pocket.  

The challenge this week on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog is "Anything Goes" so this was perfect timing to share our wedding invitation project.    

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
