Or at least the super final final sample is done. Now I just need to get my friends together assemble 65 of them! I know it sounds like a lot, but since I've actually already cut all the pieces all we have to is gluing. The invitation part is printed on pearlescent paper, so it has a little shine to it. I cut the cardstock for the inserts myself and printed the inserts on an inkjet printer. The folder and pink mat for the invitation came from Cards & Pockets.
I found the ribbon for the outside of the invites at Costco. They have a great selection of spring colors right now, and you can gat a 5o yard roll for only $6.99 at my local costco, that's a bargain. The hardest part for me to figure out was the embellishment for the front. Everything pre-made was so expensive, so I ended up buying three diffent shape-punches. A huge daisy, a smaller daisy, and a small mickey head. I used two large daisies and one small one and held the whole thing together with glue dots, and then used one large glue dot to attach the flower to the ribbon. The ribbon is held on using double-sided scrapbooking tape.
I made the inserts myself in illustrator, printed them up, and cut them. This is my favorite one of all.
I think people will be excited to get these in the mail, I know I would!
