These invites were made for my Niece's QUINCEANERA which is the Mexican equivalent of a sweet 16. She had a wonderful marsquerade party for her 15th bday and her colors were purple, lavander and lime green When I first heard of the colors I was like WHAT! but when I did the invites realize the colors go well together. Then I saw her on her beautiful dress and she look GORGEOUS!
Here are some pictures of the invites and the process of making them. My sister, mom, husband and even random visitors (ha ha) helped out with the invites. At the end they turned out great and best of all is that she LOVED them.
I was able to find VERY GOOD QUALITY paper at the Paper Mill Store they have really good prices and great selection. It's was the best site I could find if you want to make A LOT of same cards/invites. I used Dark Purple Cardstock for the base of the invite and lined the inside with Candy Apple Green translucent vellum which I printed the invitation information. The card based was embossed using my cuttle bug and then embellished with lavander and green feathers and dots of green stickles. Originally I was using Irock jewels for the embellishment but after it took me like 10 min to do just one, I went the easy route and used stickles. It still looked great. I made the centerflowers using the same vellum as the insert. Finally I tied purple, green and lavander ribbons to each of the sides and VOILA! It only took us about 4 weeks to get all 200 done, but I am very pleased with the results.
Thanks to everyone that helped!!
