"Forever Yours" Wedding Invitation

I was recently hired to design a wedding invitation for a friend/customer of mine. Her daughter had planned for a winter wedding and thought it would be fun to send out hand stamped wedding invitations with a winter theme. I have several passions/hobbies (card making, scrapbooking, and photography) and thought this would be the perfect project to wrap them all up into one.
I designed this card using their wedding colors (black and burgundy) using one of my favorite winter sets, Snowflake Spot. The snowflakes are embossed with silver embossing powder along with "forever" from Wonderful Words II.
To give this invitation the right feel I decided to take the engagement photos myself, this allowed me to play with the digital effects and add an inviting sentiment to the front of the card. The photo reads "In the Spirit of the season, we have found the perfect reason to gather friends and family". The edges of the photo were sanded off to create a distressed look and bravo burgundy ink was added around the edges to add a little color and enhance the scratch marks left behind from sanding. I am very pleased with the way this invitation turned out and the bride and groom to be were pleased as well.

My friend and her family have been busy at work creating over 200 of these to send to friends and family to share in the blissful union of her daughter and her soon to be husband. This was a fun project.
