My invites are finally done, and I'm going to run out and send them out in a little while!

So in my last post I got my letterpress invites that my fiance and I designed, which looks something like this...

Here's the image of the blind-pressed envelope that has the same pattern as the bride's veil.

Now onto the fun stuff! Embelishment! Instead of the paper sleeves, I decided to keep with my lace motif and wrapped pretty lace ribbon around them. Then I wrapped the invites with leather cords and attached little accessories made of real aquamarine chips and freshwater pearls.

Here are my assistants Mr.Beastly and Mr.Raving Rabbid helping me string the stones.

Then I realized that the chips added too much bulk to be sent in a regular envelope! D'oh! Thus, I had to put them in boxes, which is another added expense...but I couldn't live without my aquamarines and pearls...

So Here's my row of calligraphy labels for the boxes. I enjoyed trying out the oblique pen.

I printed out the RSVP on nice,toothy watercolor paper with my Epson to save some money. Here's the finished product.

Thanks so much ladies, I'm finally glad that I got to share them with you. I've been mulling over the designs since last September and although it was really fun making them, I'm glad to get it out of the way...

Ms. AnacGracia, I saw that you embossed your envelopefolds! Knowing how much embossing costs at professional printer, what did you use to make them?! I'm curious!

These are gorgeous! Love them! Did you put your return address on them? Just wondering because were in the midst of doing the message in a bottle invites which go in boxes and I like the idea of wrapping them in the craft paper but not sure if we put it at the top left or on the back or not at all!?
