For my project I am sharing with you easy DIY Wedding Invitations. This is an elegant invite that you can do fairly easily and can be mass produced. So let's get started.
I am using CutCardstock Neenah Classic Crest Card Stock in Solar White 110# Cover. Now I must say that this cardstock has impressed me so much that it has become my go to for card bases. It is really sturdy and is able to go through my laser printer, although I do the individual paper feed tray so that it has a flat path. I have cut my cardstock down to create an A2 size card base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). I then have used the Trellis Cover Plate Die from Catherine Pooler and used another piece of the Neenah cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine. I then added adhesive and adhered this to my card base.
Next, using Happy Butterflies Stamp set from Catherine Pooler I used my Misti and Versamark Ink and stamped out the butterfly images. I then coated the images with Holographic Embossing Powder from Ranger and used my heat tool for the embossing powder.

I then ran the butterflies through my die cutting machine using the matching die set. I used foam tape to adhere the butterflies to my card base.
Now, remember I told you I could run the Neenah through my laser printer? Well I actually used Microsoft Word and typed out the You're Invited, chose which font and what size I wanted for the front of my card and ran it through the laser printer. After that I cut it to the size I wanted and then used Silver Sequins Fancy Foils from Gina K and Thermo Web and ran it through my laminator. Then used a bit more foam tape to pop up the sentiment. And here you have it. I have tried to photograph it so that you can get an idea of all the sparkle on the butteerflies and from the sentiment.

And here is that hop list. Just cliick on the stop and it will take you right there.
Your next stop is Penny Arnold. Happy Hopping and thanks for stopping by!
