B's Wedding Invitations

My BFF, B, is getting married this week!!! I am so excited for her and I can't wait for her big day.  She is glowing and is so happy, I just am bursting with excitement for her!

She is doing a ton of crafting for the wedding.  They made their own centerpieces, table numbers, place cards, favors, and a bunch of other things I am forgetting right now.  I thought I would share the wedding invitations she made.  They are awesome! She cut everything out with the cricut and I did the text for her. 
Update:She used the  "Fancy Frames" cartridge.  She said it is one of the cheaper cartridges.  She also did "a ton" of modifications to get the frame to look like this.  She said she resized it larger changed the center shape. It took about 2 weeks to get it right.  
This is what it looks like when you take it out of the envelope.  It is it's own little package.  I made the text for a little tag to go on the outside with their names and wedding date on there. the white and purple that goes around is ribbon.  

 This is the inside.  I did all the text in Illustrator.  She gave me the dimensions of everything and the wording and I gave her a few text options with different fonts and they picked the ones they liked the best.  I had so much fun doing the text and playing with the layout.  We went back and fourth a bunch of times until everything was perfect.  

The invitation is glued to the back of that purple piece and the white paper is glued on top.  We used glue dots and that double stick tape pen stuff from scotch.  It held really well.  

 The information page and R.S.V.P are in that pocket.  She bought the paper with the pocket already in it.  It really was one of the most beautiful invitations I have seen.  And I'm not just saying that because she is my best friend and I helped make them. They looked crazy expensive and I think when it was all done it cost less than $4 each with postage.  She did print them herself and just had to buy paper.  It took 4 of us a whole day to put them together.  We sat and talked and laughed and made a little assembly line.  It was so fun.  

I will share some shower stuff this week.  I threw her a surprise shower and boy she was surprised!! I will be sure to share the other things she made for the wedding next week after I recover :)
