Summer Wedding

I hosted an invitation swap awhile back, and never posted photos! This was my sample a gate fold wedding invitation and save the date card using "Seaside" stamp set. I embossed the shells in white embossing powder. I think, if I was making a large quantity, I would use white craft ink vs. embossing all them! The inside is 5 x 7 inches, I made the card base 10 x 7 and then scored at 2.5 at each end to make gate fold. I cut out shells stamped on whisper white and put on dimensionals to close.

Here is the inside- I printed on Vellum card stock and then used 5/8 white satin ribbon to attach it. Like my fake names I came up with?
