- Wedding: July 2013
I just had to share them, because they were so much fun to make… and remake… and make a third time. What am I going to fill my evenings with now? Oh right, the million other wedding projects on the list. I really hope you like them!
the invitation itself is printed on wood (so cool!) We are getting married in a mountain meadow in Colorado, and all the guests are having to travel, so I wanted the invitation to give a glimpse of the feeling of the wedding weekend. They were created by an etsy miracle worker who put up with all my edits and requests!
the maps I created after a self-taught crash couse in photoshop and gimp. plus a little online sleuthing to find free fonts that mimic the invitation. they were then printed on kraft paper by catprint online printing. i have been so impressed with the quality of their printing. not to mention they are so cheap!

the close up/back side of the map:
next I made mad libs RSVP cards – what did we do without pinterest? I can’t wait to see what creative answers the guests come up with!
next i created the back of our RSVP postcard. the hardest part was figuring out how to write in a circle!
next the envelopes: I addressed them using white gel pen to make them pop on the kraft envelopes. (since my cursive still looks like a third grader’s, i used the trick of printing the address on the envelope with my printer, using a script font, and then tracing over top)
the invitation suite, all together:
all tied up with turquoise baker’s twine
and an initialed tag attached (hand punched and then stamped of course – Fiance really enjoyed that task!)
put in the envelopes and then sent on their way!
I hope you like them half as much as we do – but no matter what they were so fun to make!
