Gold Invitations

It's my grandparents' 50th anniversary this year and we're throwing them a small family get-together. I made these simple postcard style invitations for the event. The shimmery paper is by Prism- it's called Rusted. It's a really interesting Green Gold colour. I printed the invitations out on Very Vanilla cardstock. The font is Exmouth (a freebie from dafont.com if you're interested). The swirls along the sides of the vanilla are from Baroque Motifs. I embossed them with gold powder. The ribbon is something I found at a local scrapbook store. It matches the paper quite nicely. To do the knots, I used the double hole punch and did the sneaky knot. I did this instead of tying the actual knots because it ends up being a lot flatter and thus more mail friendly.

Supplies:
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Rusted, Very Vanilla
Accessories, etc.: Word, ExMouth font, organdy ribbon, double hole punch, gold EP
