Wedding set teal and gray.


Today I want to share with you a wedding set a coworker of my dh requested I make for her sister's wedding.  They wanted something very simple, and while it was hard, I was happy to oblige.  The wedding colors are (obviously) a dark silver gray and teal.  I was forced to make another Hollo's run to get just the right shade. =D

The finished size of the invite is 5x7.  The teal layer is 4.75x6.75.  The second gray is 4.25x 6.25.  The white layer measures 4x6 and is stamped in Brilliance Starlite silver with the Swirls and Curls BG stamp from Stampabilities.  The printing goes on a vellum overlay that covers only the white.  It is finished with a sheer white ribbon with 2 dainty silver stripes.  The BG swirls show through just enough to create a very elegant effect. ( I took a pic without text because I don't know how to "white it out".)

In my next post I will share the thank you that I first designed that got initial approval, but got nixed in the end (after I had much of the paper cut).  The bride wanted something VERY simple.  This is not at all to my taste, but it isn't my wedding either =).  I had originally planned on putting an image in the white space, but the bride asked me to leave it blank to put her thank you message in and make it a postcard type thank you instead of a folder.  The writing space is small for me, but I like to write long, flowery thank you's.  I do like that this is a bit different and it truly fits the bride's style!

Finally, the response card.  Simple.  Finished size measures 4x6.
