My first,pre run of a wedding invite plus a tag book.

Morning guys hope you are all well,the weather here is windy,and cold too rrrrrrrrr were has all the sunshine gone?
I am hoping this is going to automatically post thanks for the tips about posting guys,hope this works,
Anyway as you know my daughter wants me to design her wedding invites,she wants royal blue,and silver and want the cards to be simple but effective,so we came up with some idea's and this is one of them.
So would love to know what you think,remember this is my first one never done anything like this before,so here it is.

The card is from the Craft Barn and the ribbon and stickers we bought when we were out shopping,last week.

Now for my tag book I have used images from Crafty individuals,and others from my stash. Just felt like playing with some of my odd bits of card so here it is. I have,used distress inks,to go around the tags.

I also want to thank,the following Lisa,Aylisha and beverly for adding to my growing list of followers,gosh cant belive,that I am getting so many new followers each day so bless you guys a lot.
Beverley hun cant see your blog not sure if you have one or not but if you have send me an email with your link and I will pop over and say hello.

Morning Cheryl x As others have said,the wedding invitation design is as you intended - very stylish and effective and it will be hard to choose the 'one' if you make more gorgeous samples as I know you will. All your work is special Cheryl and this Tag book is another great design xx

wearestampers said...

Great colors on the invitation, maybe an embossed background?? Still lovely, and so is the tag book!!

Shell Shearer Swinscoe said...

Your wedding invite is gorgeous hun love the C&S feel!! As for your tag book, stunning!!
hugs shell xx

Sally Morgan said...

Cheryl, your invite is lovely, very clean and elegant. I really love it.
If you're going to have a go at using embossed card, why not try some white 'swiss dots' (so clean looking and if you buy it as 12 x 12 you can get 36 2inch squares (or 64 1.5 inch ones!) out of 1 sheet, mat and layer with some silver mirri, foam pad or silicone it up and pop the silver ribbon on top? You'll probably go bonkers and make loads of samples and end up using this first, lovely design! lol.
Your tag is fab, as all your work is, I love the distressed edges :)
I'm off to get the sewing machine out, dust it off and have a go at putting some stitching on a card! Have a lovely day hunni!
*hugs* Sal x

Lovely invite, gorgeous images!

Kat said...

Love the wedding card prototype Cheryl, it's really elegant. Great tag book too, very vintage.

The weather here is just amazing, we've had one lovely sunny day after another. Still a cold wind though but we're only a couple of miles (as the crow flies) from the North Sea. Yesterday morning we had a really white frost but worth it for the gorgeous day that followed.

Love the simplicity of the wedding invite (good idea too if you have loads to make LOL! would be my nightmare to make wedding invites, all that clean white space!)
Love the tag too, thanks for the inspiration.

sallysbitz said...

Your work is gorgeous Cheryl.

The invite is very elegant, but, I would add some embossing before attaching ribbons. This is NOT critising... coz we all have our own tastes & if you & your Daughter likes it, thats what counts xx

hugs sally x

craftykitten said...

Hi Cheryl,
Fabulous tag book hun, you do love your vintage don't you???
I love your invitation - perhaps you could try tying a silver and a blue together and just have one bow on an embossed background??? Just a thought.
