Below is the invitation... a tri-fold, gate-type enclosure where the top flap tucks behind the embossed monogram. The monogram is held on with a brad to ensure that it doesn't pop off (can you imagine the horror?). This sample is made with Textured Green Galore cardstock, but we will have to go with non-textured as Stampin' Up! doesn't carry textured 12x12 cardstock in single colors.
The next photo shows the bottom flap on the inside. They decided not to go with the monogrammed polka-dot here (and it's a different letter here because I didn't know the groom's last name originally), so instead, it will just be a row of polka-dots.
The next two photos are of the coordinating RSVP card. The sentiment is embossed.
On the inside, I will add a layer of Green Galore behind the white.
And lastly, this is the first draft of the menu. There are several changes to this... Instead of the monogram between their names, I will use the "&" from the Lovely Letters Alphabet set. They took off the cocktail hour section which allows the text to fit much better. They also decided to go with a Green Galore background since the tablecloths will be blue, and instead of just the two colors of polka-dots, I'll use all three colors. But this is the basic look.
Now you can understand why I haven't been posting! This was a true challenge for me, and I am SO honored and flattered that they are trusting this important task to me. So... I'll be swimming in polka-dots for the next few weeks - but it will all be worth it if it means I can help make the bride's big day more special! (and besides, with all boys, wedding planning will not really be part of my future, will it?!)
