Simple Black and White Wedding Invitations (Invitatii de nunta simple cu alb si negru)

It is time for Cuttlebug Challenge #13. We were supposed to make a simple white card. Well, for those who know me it's a known fact that I like contrasts so I just had to sneak in a little bit of black.

E timpul pentru Cuttlebug Challenge #13. Tema e: simplu si alb, dar cine ma cunoaste stie ca prefer contrastul, deci a trebuit sa folosesc macar putin negru.

I chose to do wedding invitations. I Started with e one above, trying to keep it as white as possible. The label is a vector graphic I quickly did with my software's pen tool than printed out. For the background I used Provo Craft's Textile embossing folder. The actual invite will be printed on velum which is held together by the sheer organza ribbon.

Am hotarat sa fac niste modele de invitatii de nunta. Am inceput cu cea de mai sus incercand sa folosesc alb intr-o proportie cat mai mare. Eticheta e desenata intrun program de grafica vectoriala si apoi tiparita, iar textura eleganta a hartiei e obtinuta prin stantare. Textul va fi tiparit pe hartie transparenta care se prinde de invitatie cu panglica de organza.

The next 2 samples are done using the same technique with 2 of my favorite ribbons. The text can be printed on vellum or directly on the card to stay low with the price.

Urmatoarele 2 modele sunt realizate cu ajutorul aceleiasi tehnici, dar sunt decorate cu 2 dintre panglicile mele preferate din ultima perioada. Textul poate fi tiparit fie pe hartie transparenta, fie direct pe invitatie pentru a pastra pretul cat mai scazut posibil.

I would call these fit for a year of economical crisis: simple, yet very elegant.

As spune ca aceste invitatii simple si elegante sunt foarte potrivite pentru perioada de criza economica pe care o traversam.

If I were getting married all over again, I would certainly hope that you would create my invitations, Meda.

This B&W creation is overflowing with elegance, along with an aire of superb simplicity.

I love the B&W invitations but really, be careful of the economical crisis observation.. it not suits at all with the idea of "the most special moment of my life".
my advice, get it out of there.
