                Those look great!

                How did you print on the vellum? I've been trying to do that for our invites but the ink gets smudged on our printer. I've been around to a couple of print places and no one will do vellum printing on site. They all send it out and then it takes 7-10 days to get back.

                What kind of printer are you using? Did you have any problems?

                  I have an inexpensive inkjet, it's a Lexmark. Ours pops the prints out at the bottom and they are face up so I just have to do them and once it gets spit out I grab it right away, making sure to not touch any ink, and place it aside to dry. I let them sit for about 5 minutes but you can go less. I could just look and see if they were dry--very shiny when wet. I guess that is my big tip-don't touch them and set aside. I love Vellum and was thrilled when I found a pack of 50 sheets at Michaels for like $10.
