Wedding Invitation Part 4

I forgot to mention that my college friend's job involves a lot of travel.  That's why she wanted her invitation to look like a traditional plane ticket bought from a travel agency.  That's why there is no need for the traditional wedding envelope.
The base (Part 1) and the slider (Part 2 and Part 3) have been made.  Now it's time to show you the inserts, which features the details of the wedding.

With Adobe Photoshop, I typed the details of the wedding, making sure they fit in an 8.5 x 11 cardstock.  The tricky part of this process is selecting the font, and making sure no words and names were misspelled.  When everything was good, I started printing.

I cut the 8.5 x 11 sheets in thirds, making three inserts for the invitation.  Each insert has different lengths as well with a difference of 1/4 inch.  I also rounded the top left corner of each insert.

The next step was to ink the left edge with black ink.  The stamped a ship image by Tim Holtz on the right side.


When the three inserts are stacked together, this is how it looks:

I'm excited to show you the final product.  And that's for the next blog...  'Til then!
