I finally got my computer working again--yeah! Now that all of the wedding invitations have been mailed out, I can show you what I've been working on this past December and January.
A few months ago, my friends asked if I knew of any place (company) that could make their custom wedding invitations. I told them that I run a card making business and I would be happy to see if I could make them. I love making elegant cards so I figured it wouldn't be difficult to make elegant wedding invitations. There was just one catch--their theme was baseball! How do you combine "baseball" and "elegant" into the same wedding invitation? It stumped me for a little bit, but after a few trial runs I came up with this.
For the front of the invitation, I stamped the letter "B" for the groom's last name.
The flap with the "B" on it opens to the right to reveal the invitation and the RSVP cards.
Behind the vellum layer is a picture of a baseball field. If you look closely at the photo, the words "opening day" are flashed across the score board in the background. It coordinates with the wording of the invitation.
The RSVP cards were designed to look like baseball tickets. They even have a "bar code" at the bottom of them. Of course they wouldn't be complete without using some baseball lingo. "Yes, we're stepping up to the plate." The entire invitaiton was baseball, including the return postage on the RSVP envelopes!
The best part about making these wedding invitations was the weekend when they came to help put them together. We talked, we laughed, we ate, we watched sports, and we had a great time.
If you or anybody you know is thinking about getting married, please keep me in mind. I'd love to help you with custom made wedding invitations, "save the date" cards, thank you cards, wedding programs, etc. Simply email me (Dannie@DanniesDesigns.com) for more details.
