TO – couawilou: They look beautiful… love the leaves, perfect for a Canadian Fall Wedding.
Now as I am yet to attack this world of Invites, I have to ask the obvious Question (hope you don’t mind)
How’d ya do that ?
Any info you can provide would be helpful. Did you order some of the components on-line (like the printing), or did you buy an Invite Kit, and print them up at home ? Leaves I take it was a punch… how did you attach them ? Where did you order / buy the custom wax seal (and wax) etc.
ANY or ALL Details much appreciated (I am sure I am not the only newcomer who is overwhelmed by the Invitation Process)

You will love the stamp, but make sure to test first lol. I think I tested about 3-4 times to make sure it was done right to go on the actual envelopes.
@This Time Round:
Thank you. I will be happy to answer all these questions.

First off, we got really lucky with the invites. We bought the semi-DIY kits, those that are all done, just have to print them at home and assemble them. I downloaded the zip file and just used the word documents and set-it up that way, made it easier.
So usually those kits are $50 at Michaels and even with a 50% coupon it was more expensive that what we paid for. We have this store called CreativeBags – awesome store, we bought the invite kits there for $10 each on clearance. So basically 4 sets of 50 invites, cost us $40 plus tax.
For the leaves, I used my cardstock that I used for my guestbook mini envelopes, I had tons left over and still do to finish the guestbook. The punchers, bought them at Michaels with 50% coupons. I used a glue stick to glue them one by one on the cards. WARNING: your fingers will get sticky, I took breaks everything 15 minutes to wash my hands, clean them and go back to it)
The stamp, Fiance ordered it online for $25, it’s a customizable site for stamps. To be totally honest, I don’t know the website, Fiance is the one who did this part. I could ask him for you ladies. I bought the wax at Michaels again with 50% coupons (gotta love those coupons).
I hope these help. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions, I’ll be happy to answer them for you.

I love the wax seal, pocket, and the way you’ve tied it all together with a ribbon and leaf to match the theme!

Thank you so much! Hard work paid off 🙂
Thank you. I almost did them in French too for my family in Montreal, but since they all speak Portuguese too I didn’t do them, I’m kinda glad I didnt hehe.
