My sister-in-law is getting married on 10.10.15, so when she emailed me on July 1 to see if I was interested in making paper goods for the wedding, I jumped at the opportunity. The past month has been a blast: we've created shared boards on Pinterest, texted while out shopping, exchanged more than 100 emails (no joke) between me and the bride and the MOB (aka "MIL"--my mother-in-law), and face-timed to look at possibilities together. Ideas have evolved, supplies have been purchased and returned and replacements bought, I made a Google spreadsheet that is color-coded and has no fewer than 5 tabs (duh, I wouldn't settle for anything else), and I've spent several hours cutting and gluing vellum (most of which was excruciating and challenging and would make me swear to never use vellum again if it weren't so darn pretty). Anyways, here's a sneak peek at what I've created so far! More photos to come later this week when more supplies arrive in the mail, and I'll share "the big day" as well :)
Here's what I finished today: the placecards! These will be tied to the napkin at each place setting. The white cardstock square is stamped with silver ink, a vellum square printed with the guest name is glued on top, and this square sits atop foam tape above the silver napkin tag. Stunning!
The escort cards can't be revealed yet (I ordered the velvet ribbon yesterday and am eagerly awaiting it's arrival!) but all the pieces have been cut and stamped and printed. Similar stamped cardstock and printed vellum motif.
