Sir Stampalot challenge

Good Evening all I hope you are well. I have had a busy weekend of cards, it started Friday when (even after double checking that it was not the case a few days earlier) my brother called me in a panic saying he needed his save the dates for his wedding that evening as he needed to take them somewhere the following day. So when I got home from work I set out to make these save the dates for him. I am really pleased with how they turned out, my printer is not so happy - it didn't like printing on the vellum.
I am entering this in to the Sir Stampalot challenged where the theme is 'Moving', they do say you can interprit this any way you want, I am seeing it as my brother and his fiancee are moving forward in their relationship and getting married, they also brought the wedding a year forward - this involved another panicked call to me asking if I would have enough time to do the save the dates, invites, table names, table plans fabour boxes........... lol of course I said yes.

Here is the save the date I made 25 of these in the end and they have asked for another 6 - think i will make 1 just incase - I have permission from my brother and his fiancee to show you this

 

The information is printed on vellum and the snow scene shows through 




Hope you like it :) Just got to make the pocket fold invitations now- that is going to wait until May though

Here is a link to Sir Stampalot - they are moving to a new premesis in Peterborough soon whoop - more room for craft stuff

Hello Amanda

These are really very special, your brother must be thrilled with them. It is so special whem they are custom made.

I recently made the stationery from the wedding of one of my sons and really enjoyed it.

We are almost neighbours, I am about four miles across the fields from Chatteris where another of my sons lives.

Thank you so much for sharing the STD's with us at our Stampalot challenge and good luck with the draws.
