Day 80, Sunday, March 21

S is for Stamping. Today, we stamped, punched holes, tied ribbon, glue dotted leaves and flowers, scored, folded and stuffed Toni and Jeremy's wedding invitations. Most of the girls who are going to be in her wedding, came to my house to assemble the invites! We talked, laughed, worked and ate for a couple of hours this afternoon. Thanks for asking me to help you, Toni! Love Ya!

This is what the invites looked like folded. The flower is cut from Life's a Beach and the leaves are from Walk In My Garden. I think the stamp is from Michael's. The ink was magenta from Stampin' Up.

Oops, this one is sideways! Anyway, you can see how we folded the cardstock into thirds. The wording was printed on sheets of vellum...and attached to the cardstock by two 1/8" holes and ribbon knotted through them. The cardstock started out at 6 x 12. Then I printed the return postcard (see next picture) at the end of the paper, ran the perforating blade at 4" make the return card 4 x 6.

This is the entire length of the 6 x 12 cardstock. (I covered up the names and addresses)
We scored it again at about 3 3/4" to allow the whole thing to fold into thirds.

This is the entire back.
