This is so beautiful!!! Where did you get your template from? Could you please give more info…
Would you mind sharing a template with me as well! Thanks! These are beautiful!
Thanks ladies! These invitations were the most time consuming and stressful part of the wedding planning process for me by FAR! All the paper came from Cards & Pockets, and I got all the printing done on 8.5″ x 11″ at FedEx (they are VERY reasonable). But then I cut every piece of paper myself, of course trying to save money (and this crazy girl measured to the 1/16″)! I’m sorry, I don’t have a template to share, and I actually didn’t even keep the measurements that I had written down for each of the inserts. It was just trial and error until I found the measurements that worked. I recommend finding a place locally that cuts the paper for you. Even FedEx can cut the paper. After it was all cut, I stamped and embossed the designs on the paper. Which I don’t recommend! It was very messy & time consuming! The end product looked amazing, but the black sparkly embossing powder would flake off if you weren’t careful and it would leave smear marks on the metallic white. I tried to troubleshoot that by adding a piece of Vellum over the invitation part. ALSO, the invitation was very heavy because I used card stock for all of the paper, so shipping was pricey! But in the end, it’s exactly what I wanted. Best of luck ladies!
