cozy wedding part 2

Hi everyone!  I hope you're all doing well and enjoying your weekend.  We are doing well here.  Matt is gone on a football trip so it's just been me and my boy this weekend.  We've had a great time but oh how we miss Matt. Yup, I started this post last weekend.  Our internet is so slow that it's taken me all week to get back to it and get the pictures uploaded!!  

I'm excited to share the invitations I made forever ago for Mariah's wedding.  This was such a fun project for me.  Mariah is special to Matt and I because besides being an awesome person, she delivered Jonathan!  We feel eternally grateful to her for that and honestly feel like she is our hero. :)

This was also a fun project for me because it got me out of my box.  I am very comfortable with working with many different textures on paper.  I am constantly combining paper with fabric, sewing, wood, paint, etc.  But this project was done mostly on the computer.  It took a lot of trial and error and a lot of time teaching myself new programs but I am so pleased with the end result.  I'm going to show it to you in the order that you'd see it if you got this invitation in the mail.

First, the envelope.  I used kraft square envelopes, wrapped a piece of washi tape around it, and then stamped the tape with this stamp by Ann-Marie.
I wrapped the invitation and the RSVP card together using twine.  
Invitation, RSVP card, envelope....
I had so much fun with the design of the invitation.  I used some color blocking and loved combining different fonts to give a fun, eclectic, and elegant feel.  
For the RSVP card Mariah wanted a fun postcard and this is the wording she came up with.  Love it!  Once again, love the combo of fonts and colors.  
It was such an honor to create these invitations for the Lipmans!  Thanks for reading along!
