I used PowerPoint for the inserts and the main invite card, vistaprint for the reply and photoshare cards, palm tree punch from michaels, pics from our photog.

If you see any typos, keep it to yourself! They're already enclosed and ready to go!

Any QQQ I didn't answer, just ask!

Someone PM'd me asking this and I thought I'd post it in case anyone wondered :)

i didn't use stickers! :) but, here is what i did do:
i cut the bronze text weight paper into like 1 1/2" squares, then i used the punch. then i cut like 2" squares of the parchment colored paper for backing. i used permanent adhesive tape (sort of like double stick tape but without the tape between the double sides? you know what let me just get you some pics :) hold on..

ok here is the adhesive

and here is the square, i took this pic at a different angle so it doesnt show the shiny-ness.

i used the permanent adhesive for things like sticking the bronze square to the parchment square, and then the one half of the whole square to the invite, but then the removeable adhesive on the other half of the whole square to make it so people can open it from the invite, kwim? i'm also gonna copy and post this reply in the thread in case anyone has this Q too :)

            Abbie, they turned out wonderful! You did an excellent job.

            FYI: Just to be on the safe side, I think I would block out that address you have in the photo (the one with the mailing label). I know that a lot of people wander on this forum(without ever becoming members), just by searching google. You'd be surprise what crazy people can do with just a name and an address! You never know.

            Anyhoo, I LOVE the colors as well. Your guests are going to think they came from a professional printer!

              They're beautiful!
              I love the script font you used, the pretty stamps for the RSVPs, the photos of you two, and on and on!!!

              Great job :)
