the invitation that started it all

I wrote more about the invitation that started it all on my other blog in late May 2009:

Anyone who keeps up with me on various social networking sites (oh yeah, did I mention I'm on Twitter now?) will have already seen this...a couple of times. But I thought I'd post a couple of pics of the latest wedding invitation design here anyway. You know, just in case. Wouldn't want anyone to slip through the cracks.

Look familiar? This design is based on the invitation that started it all, in other words, the invitation I came up with for my own wedding 4+ years ago after deciding that everything I liked was over my very modest budget. Like, way over my budget. Like, four times my budget! And as weird as it might seem to offer to make essentially the same invite for someone else, this color combination (which, when described to those curious about our wedding plans pre-wedding, was always met with a response along the lines of, "oh, that's very...interesting") has always been one of my faves and I do love the daisy (although, had my wedding been in late summer instead of early spring, I would have gone with zinnias), so it wouldn't be fair not to offer it as an option in the olde Etsy shoppe.

The main reason I redid the design is that I only kept one of the originals, you know, for the scrapbook. And while I was at it, I made a couple of minor changes, primarily to the font and adding the daisy accent to the ribbon around the response set. The only thing I didn't add because I don't have any left and I'm not sure I can find it is the tissue paper I used between the invite itself and the response set in the overall assembly. If I find it, I'll add it, or offer it up with another design.
