Here are the invitations I have been painstakingly working on for weeks. They are on peach shimmer cardstock with ivory shimmer cardstock. I embossed each layer of the invitation as well as the envelopes. Sorry for the fuzzy pictures. My camera is only so so.
What do you think?

Wow theses are beautiful! I love the birdcage picture in the very front and the two birds on the envelop. Where did you get those stamps? My wedding has a bird theme. Your invitations are just so elegant.

Thanks! I got the stamps at Michaels. They are part of the valentine’s collection. I used a bronze pigment ink for the cage. The address stamp I ordered on Etsy.com.

The map was free but it took me forever! I google mapped the location and print screened it to paint. I then took the line tool and traced over the main roads. After that I deleted the picture in the background. It took me about 6 hours to do total. I believe there is a tutorial on here somewhere on how to do it that can explain it better than I can.
As far as a template goes, I didn’t really use one. I used powerpoint and set up three different size boxes. The first being about a half inch smaller than the size of my envelope. The second box was an inch smaller than the first, and the third box was an inch smaller than the second. The bird cage card was an inch smaller than the third. I added whatever words I wanted to in the boxes. After I printed and cut them I glued them to cardstock that was about 1/4 inch bigger than the cards on all sides. I then used a brad tool to make the holes and inserted the brads.
It really sounds much more complicated than it is.
