My first wedding invitation cards



WI001(Limited edition) WI002 (Limited edition)THESE CARDS ARE CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK

I am so thrilled that all the wedding invitation cards are all done! This is the first time I was given the opportunity to do invitation cards for a wedding. I must say I was a bit intimidated at first and was really worried with the amount of work that will take place once I accepted this order. But luckily it was only for 90 pieces......But even so, I had a hard time getting them done in the short time frame. This was definitely a lot of work and time consuming.....but I felt so happy to see how happy my customer was when she received the cards from me.......she was glowing with joy hehehe! :)

The motif used was of course a wedding dress......using paper doily as the main element in the design.......but as you can see, there are two types of doily here since there wasn't enough doily for me to make a wedding dress for the black card design. My customer wanted the black one, but the doily was not enough to make 90 pieces of them.....so she decided that I do two different types, one black and one dark red.....45 pieces of each. Definitely these wedding cards are of limited edition......I won't be able to do the same ones again as those particular doily design are not available in stock. So if there is anyone who are interested in ordering something similar like these, I would have to use another type of doily design for the wedding dress. So in other words, these wedding dresses are one of a kind hehehe!

The wording on the front design, "Our Wedding" was handwritten by me...........I had to practice writing it many many times on a piece of paper before actually writing it down on the card itself. One slight mistake and all will be ruined! So I had to be careful.....can't make any mistake otherwise I would have to make them all over again.

I have learned a lot from this experience and I believe that I need to learn more in order to make the invitation cards in future. Especially learning how to do the map! Yup! Must learn how to make those hehehe.....Learn, I must! LOL!

Both designs are special in their own way..........the black one is special for the black paper, which is kinda expensive and it's doily design is unique.....with 2 color combination, silver and gold.....the dark red one is special for the tiny flower it has on neckline of the dress, I really love that touch! hehehe
