Bridal Shower Invites...

Peter has a cousin who is getting married this fall. Her mom asked me to make her bridal shower invitations, so she could have something fall themed. They had to have brown and burnt orange colors, and they were going to need quite a few, so we wanted to make sure that they weren't "lumpy" so they wouldn't charge extra at the PO. After making some samples and tweeking here and there, this is what we came up with!

I used SU!'s Fall Whimsey stamp set, SU! cardstock and ink in Chocolate Chip, and Really Rust, and Very Vanilly cardstock. I ended up making 70 invitations, complete with a printed piece that was adhered to the inside of the invite with all the pertinent information on it. It is hard to see, but there are leaves and acorns stamped on the brown cardstock background, as well as the rust colored strip. This was my first job making invitations for someone where I was actually hired. It was nice! Here is the finished product:
