As I gave a sigh of relief and a wave goodbye, Mr. Spring Roll placed our invitations in the outgoing mailbox at the Post Office. And with that, they’re off; hopefully making it to their destinations within the next couple of days.
Remember when I asked for help choosing our invitation’s belly band? After reading everyone’s great advice, I decided to use the monogram band. I absolutely loved the bow, but didn’t want to run into any problems with smooshed bows and increased postage.
Thanks to reader Karen and others’ suggestions, I added a box around the monogram to make it look more like a frame.
Let’s take a look inside, shall we?
I wish Mrs. Cupcake’s post on invitations was written prior to printing our invitations; as you can see, I added the word and in ’two thousand nine’.
I’ve seen several reply cards that have a space for guests to leave messages; I love the idea and can’t wait to read the cards.
I included a card with important information (location address, wedding website, etc.), and my DIY map on the back of the card.
For those who are curious, our invitations are called Portrait of Love, from Wilton’s line of DIY invitations. The invitations come in a set of 25, and includes envelopes, pre-cut card stock, and vellum wrap.
I omitted the picture frame (which I will be using for another project), and used Wilton’s Microsoft Word templates to design the invitation layout. I then printed everything using my Canon ink-jet printer.
