Wedding Stresses

It has finally hit me how much stuff I have to do before we leave for our wedding. I am getting so stressed as the date is drawing closer. It doesn't help that we are planning a wedding and party in other places from where we live. Grant and I are getting married in the Dominican in early May with just our siblings (and their partners) and parents present. When we return, we are having a celebration with our extended family and our friends.

Here's what I have been really busy with lately, and therefore not stamping! This has taken over my stamping space. I love the way these invitations and RSVPs have turned out. No surprise that they use all SU supplies! I had actually planned on using a Martha Stewart designer paper (despite not being convinced about it) because Grant really liked it but then my sister told me she didn't like the paper - which confirmed my idea of changing it! I'm glad she told me despite our Mom telling her not to. Plus, once I changed it, Grant liked it better too!

This is a close up picture of the invitations. The pictures don't really show the colours well but the brown is SU chocolate chip and the green is SU certainly celery. You also can't tell from the photos but the type is actually printed in those colours as well using Marni's RGB values.

Now the only bad thing is I actually have to make a couple more. I thought I had enough but there were a couple of last minute additions to the invitation list by Grant's Mom.

Supplies

Paper: SU ww, certainly celery, chocolate chip, chocolate chip dp
Ribbon: SU certainly celery
