50th Anniversary Invitation

I have been very busy this past week making 54 invitations (5 1/2 x 8") for my in-laws upcoming 50th anniversary celebration. I used a shimmery gold cs for the base, ivory cs for the second layer, and then the top layer is 29 lb. vellum (parchment). The "50th" stamp at the top is embossed in gold, the edges are all inked with gold ink, and the ivory layer has a bouquet of roses stamped in gold so it would show through the parchment. I bought ivory coloured envies and will be printing them on the computer with the same font as the invitation. These were lots of fun to make and didn't take long at all.

Card Details: Gold CS - unknown; Ivory CS & Vellum - Recollections; Corner Punch - EK Success; Gold EB Powder - Ranger; Gold Ink - Colour Box; Stamps: Bouquet of Roses - Judikins, 50th - unknown.
