Ta Da!!!! The Finished Product!!

Yesterday was the 2-month mark until our wedding and on Friday I finally sent out the invitations. I wanted to share the invitations with you since I handmade them all and am quite proud. I made 125 and I was very stubborn and would not allow anyone to help me. I only accepted help when it came to putting stamps and labels on the envelopes.

 I lined all 125 envelopes with heart paper for some added color, since I LOVE a lot of color!

This is the finished product

Not sure why I can't get this picture to rotate. I used embossing powder for the mason jar and flowers and then I added matching glitter to each flower. I will carry wildflowers and the centerpieces on the tables will be wildflowers in mason jars. I selected pink, purple and orange flowers because those are the wedding colors.

Me, my sister, my grandmother and my great Aunt Lu stuffing envelops and putting on stamps. I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of the RSVP cards!!! But if you enlarge this picture you might be able to see them.
(Sorry, Laura, not the best picture of you, I must have said something stupid)

Grr, pictures are refusing to rotate! These are the stamps I used. I'm not really into all the weddingy themed stuff, I prefer colorful things and springy things, and I love butterflies! 

For the RSVP cards I hand-cut each one into a heart shape. There are 4 possible color combinations for the RSVP cards:
bright pink card with orange envelops
orange card with bright pink envelope
purple card with green envelope
green card with purple envelope
Yes, I LOVE color!!

Thanks for letting me share these with you! Have a great week!!

Can't wait to hear all about it and see pics... you're going to be gorgeous! :)
