MDS Save the Dates & Wedding Invitations

Gosh, it's only Tuesday!? It feels like this week has been going for ages. Hopefully the rest of the week goes by a little quicker, actually a lot quicker, than yesterday and today. Luckily, I have lots of things to keep me busy to help pass the time. I've been working on several upcoming classes, our Christmas card for this year (you can never start too early), and a few other projects. Even though the past couple of days have lasted forever, last weekend seems like yesterday! As I mentioned last week, my sweet cousin got married in a beautiful, rustic outdoor ceremony and barn reception. It was a blast and so beautiful! Today, I wanted to share her Save the Dates & wedding invitations that I created with My Digital Studio.

Her Save the Dates were simple, but so fun! We made a photo take up the entire card, and added the information in white with a simple font and only a peek at what was to come of the wedding invitations (the more cursive, elegant "the" in "Save the Date"). She wanted to make them magnetic, so we bought magnetic sheets and punched hearts with the new Itty Bitty Punch Pack. The magnetic sheets were already adhesive backed, so all we had to do was stick them on. So quick & easy! The perfect touch with the hearts too, right?

The wedding invitations were much more rustic and elegant. Her reception had lots of burlap and lace, and was accented in navy, light pink, and white, so we took all of that into consideration when creating the invitations. 

I used a burlap print from Etsy (the Burlap Ribbon download was much too skewed blown up as the background), the Navy Grosgrain Ribbon download, and the Delicate Adornments download for the lace. I think the lace it what really makes it! I loved how elegant and beautiful the ribbon and lace made the invitations, yet they were still rustic with the burlap background. These turned out so beautifully with professional printing through Stampin' Up!, and we all couldn't have been more pleased!

I also created her coordinating RSVP cards, but I forgot to snap a picture of those.  It is truly an honor when someone requests that I make invitations for them, no matter the occasion, and I was truly grateful Kelsey allowed me to create this special touch for her big day! I wish her & Cullen all the happiness and love in the world!
