How Wedding Invitations Are Made

You may remember this post from a while ago where I showed a few samples of wedding invitations I had made for a bride. She combined elements from both samples to create her own idea and I have been working on mass producing them. I'm more than half way done, but thought I'd show you the finished product and what it takes to get there!

Here is the finished set. The bellyband holds the invitation and post-card sized response card.

And these are the steps it took to get there

Some fun facts:
  • 110 invitation sets were needed
  • 175 pieces of cardstock were used to create the 990 pieces needed to create all 110 sets
  • 220 circles were punched (110 Elegant Eggplant and 110 Whisper White--which were also stamped)
  • 550 leaves were stamped using Old Olive in the corners of the invitations and response cards as well as the center of the belly band
  • 880 corners were rounded
