Ashley’s wedding invitations, thank you cards, and save-the-date cards

My oldest daughter Ashley tied the knot last month in a very beautiful and special ceremony.  She chose the colors ivory and red for her wedding so I made 130 each of the save-the-date cards, invitations, and thank you cards for the occasion using her colors.  Yes….that’s 390 total hand-made cards!  She picked out the Bazzill cardstock  and coordinating  My Mind’s Eye paper.   It was definitely a labor of love!  The pieces listed below were all cut/embossed one at a time using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Sizzix Big Shot.   Whew!  This was a HUGE project!  As you can imagine, my hands and wrists were sore – not to mention all the stamping that was done!!
