Wedding Invites Samples

My sister is getting married in September this year and has asked me to do her wedding stationary. We met up and she gave me some very rough ideas - she wanted fun, a bit of pink and hearts not to fussy.  So with not a lot to go on I have started to make her some samples and do a couple of challenges along the way

This card uses a digi image from Pollycraft, they are coloured using my promarkers and flexi markers. I mounted the image onto a pink mat that I cut using my woodware cutter with the Victorian cutter .  The hearts have been cut out of the same pink card on my ecraft

This card uses a two digi images from bugaboo, again they are coloured using the pro and flex markers. They have mounted onto a piece of pink card cut with the Victorian blade in my woodware cutter. The sentiment has my sister name and her future husband name separated by a little pink heart and mounted onto a piece of card cut on the woodware

On this one I used an embossing folder to do the lets celebrate on to the pink card and inked very lightly. The heart aperture was cut on the ecraft, the image you can see through the heart my sister chose from Bigstock and its on the inside part of the invitation 

On this card another digi image this time a fun one from Mo's Digital Pencil. Again gently coloured with my flex markers then mounted on to simple mat of pink. I then ran a piece of the same pink card through my big shot using the hearts embossing folder from Papermania.  I cut the edges with the Victorian cutter to add interest.  I will properly add some words once my sister has either given my some more of an idea or decided which bits of each card she wants - I think this could be a long job lol

Thanks for looking

My fave is Mo's image too :) I wonder how many you have to make? Would it be cheating to colour one image and then scan and reproduce the number you need?

What fun! Di xx
