Wedding Shower Invites

I finally finished all 120 wedding shower invites for my cousin's shower next month. I now have to switch gears to the actual wedding invites! I love that she is so excited about all the details of her wedding. I talked to her fiance this weekend at a wedding and he thanked me for all my hard work but, what was really nice to hear, without him even saying it, is how much he wants her to have the kind of wedding she has always wanted. You just don't see that as much as you should, right? And I really believe that if you aren't into your wedding, you probably won't be into your marriage. Congrats to them, I look forward to helping with the shower and being there on their big day!!

The invites were the pocket fold envelope made with the Sentimentals cartridge. I used the hide contour in Design Studio to remove the fleur-de-lis cut from it. I don't know the exact cut size but, I was able to cut two per 12x12 sheet. I also used Tie the Knot to cut the 'S' monogram at 2" and then embossed them with the Swiss Dots folder. I was able to cut 20 monograms per page when using the Auto Fill feature on the Cricut. The actual invite I cut in black and then mounted the white to it. I punched a hole in the top and added the 'swiss dot' ribbon.
