Wedding Invitations

I  wanted to share my sister's wedding invitations.  By now I would think my family has received theirs.  My sister is having a very small wedding and I was happy to help her by making her invitations.  You can't see the sparkly of these hearts very well in the photo.  They are embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder.  That has to be my favorite EP ever.  I used Lemon tart ink and satin ribbon by PTI.  Yep, I stamped, embossed and cut out 72 of those hearts.  I wouldn't do it again for anyone but my sister.  NO ONE...not even for money:)  Actually it wasn't that bad.  These just took me a while to make.  My PTI order ended up taking a REALLY long time to ship and then I had to get them done before I left for my dad's.  All that made it a bit stressful.  It all got done and turned out fine.  I hope she likes them.

Here is the inside:

I have smudged out the details.  We can't  have any extras coming...sorry:)  

What's In It?
Stamps: Ever After, Verve Anniversary Birds
Ink: Lemon Tart, memento black
Paper: vanilla, vellum cardstock, premade cards
