Wedding Invitation Part 1

Earlier this year, I was mentioning about making wedding invitations for a very dear college friend of mine.  I've been itching to share it with you, but I had to wait 'til after the wedding.

The wedding has taken place, which is the reason for my absence from Tinker Planet.  I was in the Philippines for about three weeks, and that sure was a short, sweet and memorable visit.

Now, I'd like to share with you the wedding invitations I made.  I will post as I made the invitations, step by step.

The wedding's theme was orange and black.  So we opted for a black base and orange inserts.

The first step was to score the base.  I stuck to 8.5 x 11 cardstock (Recollections in Black). 

After scoring, I rounded the top left corner of the base.

Then with a bone folder, I started folding.  The rounded corner is in the inside of the base.

Then I cut strips of orange cardstock (Stampin' Up in Pumpkin Pie).

Then the orange strips were punched with EK Success Deep Edge Puncher in Swirls.  Notice that I also scored a line below the swirls.

After that, I adhered the orange strip to the inner flap of the base.  Now you have an idea on how the base looks like.

You must be wondering how this base is going to close.  I'll share that with you tomorrow.

'Til next blog!
