Invitations

My family has hosted an Open House on Christmas Eve for over 14 years now, and I have enjoyed making the invitations almost every year. Since I started blogging, I have begun to see the world through the eyes of a blog reader. What images would read well on my blog? So I have been taking many more pictures than I ever had before. It has been coming in handy on many fronts!

I decided to use this image from a post from Christmas of last year to create this year's Christmas Eve invitations. I printed the image on Strathmore blank cards with a deckle edge. Then I used the Strathmore Vellum Overlays to print the invitation information for the inside of the card. A little gold ribbon to tie them together and voila!

I think they turned out rather well!
