Wedding Ensemble

Hello. Today I’m sharing more details of the wedding ensemble that I did for the Tour de Freaks blog tour. There are quite a few pictures today. For the ensemble I made an invite, rsvp card, menu, program and thank you card.
The invite uses 2 of the stamps from Friends Never Fade. I used the swirl flower stamp on the Daffodil Delight background. Then I added a Tangerine Tango layer followed by the actual invite. I stamped the flowers in Daffodil Delight and the stems (from Petal Pizazz) in Old Olive. I used a sponge dauber to add Early Espresso to the centers of the flowers. I also added some shading to the flowers with Tangerine Tango. I used my blender pen, dabbed it into the Tangerine Tango ink and colored in some shading. Its very simple to do and gives it a nice effect.

Next is the RSVP card using the same shading technique.

Then we have the menu, thank you card and program. I did not do the shading on these items. For the program I used a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock and added Tangerine Tango flowers instead. (I did make a typo on the word “invocation” on the program….I didn’t use my spell check beforehand). The program is held together with the new Daffodil Delight ribbon.

I had a lot of fun making these wedding items. I’m not sure yet if I’m going to use this design for my own invites but it’s a nice sample to show any of my engaged friends who are looking for invites. :)
