Purple Wedding Invitations in Boxes (Invitatii de nunta mov in cutii)


Hello everyone.
This is my project for the Cuttlebug Challenge Spa Weekend. Check the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog for more great projects, tutorials and challenges.
Salut, acesta este proiectul meu pentru Cuttlebug Challenge Spa weekend. Vizitati Cuttlebug Challenge Blog pentru mai multe proiecte, concursuri si tutoriale.

The party is ending tonight. All the winners will be announced on Tuesday. Come back here to download the watercolor anemone digital image I promissed.
Petrecerea se termina in seara aceasta. Toti castigatorii vor fi anuntati marti. Va astept aici pentru varianta digitala a picturii cu anemone.

Actually, making wedding invitations is the very reason I bought my cuttlebug for. It costs a fortune to ship such a heavy machine to Romania but it is sure worth it.

This is a wedding invitation set I am designing for an autumn wedding. Here are the 3 designs that the bride will choose from (or I will make a few of each if she can't decide), all featuring my very favorite cuttlebug folder: TEXTILE.
Acesta este un set de invitatii pentru o nunta de toamna la al carui design lucrez. Mai jos sunt 3 modele din care mireasa va alege sau, daca nu se poate decide, voi face cateva din ficare :). Pentru toate am folosit matrita mea preferata: TEXTILE.

1. Purple grapes wedding invitation.

This design is perfect for a vineyard wedding theme. It measures 13.5x13.5 cm (about 5"x5").
I embossed a narrow strip then added a satin bow and a grape I made from wire and beads. On the inside I have the wording and a little photo of the couple that holds the ribbon in place. It's the middle one in the group photo.

1. Invitatie de nunta cu ciorchine de struguri mov
Acest design este foarte portivit pentru o nunta intr-o podgorie viticola. Masoara 13.5x13.5cm si este decorata cu o fasie stantata cu modelul TEXTILE, o funda de saten si un ciorchine realizat din margele in 2 nuante de mov insirate pe sarma aurie.

2. Gold satin rose wedding invitation in a box.
This is a gate fold invitation with the rounded "gates" embossed and sponged with gold acrylic paint. I made a huge satin rose with a pearl in the middle to embellish it hence the 2.5 cm (1") tall box that replaces the envelope. The wording is printed on vellum through which you can see the photo of the couple printed on the inside on the invitation. The box is on the left in the group photo.

2. Invitatie de nunta cu trandafir auriu din saten.

Acesta este un model de invitatie foarte elegant decorat cu un trandafir auriu confectionat din panglica de saten cu o perla alba in mijloc. O astfel de invitatie nu incape decat intr-o cutie inalta de 2.5cm (cea din stanga i poza de grup).

3. Wedding invitation with purple bow of satin.
I love this wide double sided satin ribbon very much. It really leaves no place for another embellishment and the cuttlebug Textile Folder really compliments it. It can be presented in a purple box or as it is, without any envelope. Box on the right in the group photo.

1. Invitatie de nunta cu funda mov din saten
Imi place foarte mult panglica acesta de saten dublu. O simpla funda si nu mai e nevoie de nimic altceva pentru a da eleganta acestei invitatii. Poate fi prezentata ca atare sau intr-o cutie mov (dreapta in poza de grup).

4. Table number doubles as frame with couple's photo.
4. Rama foto cu dublu rol de numar masa.
