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 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.
