Our cake and cake stand. The cake scrolls are supposed to match our invitations. We were running out of time so we had to cut the cake right after the $ dance. Cake stand was dollar store votive holders turned upside down with a fake orchid and flameless tealights inside. I can't remember which PW lady gave me the idea but thank you!

Talk about labor of love! I'm not crafty or patient but we really wanted to make these ourselves. But if I ever see an embosser again, it will be too soon!

DIY Invites photo 1

Design by The Fiance. Printing by Office Depot. Paper, envelopes, ink and embossing powder from Paper Source, stamp from Michael's on clearance. Embosser borrowed from a friend.

Everything is stamped and embossed in moss green. The reception card has a map on the back. We made them in both English and Spanish with Scriptina and Oakwood fonts.

Our colors, if you didn't get are orange and moss green.

It's nothing that I thought I wanted but everything that I needed. My sister and 2 friends helped me pick this out. I love it! I didn't like it after I ordered it but then it came in, I tried it on and I make it look good. ;-)
