Christmas Wedding Invitations....PP126




A few days ago, the son of a gal I work with told his mom that he and his fiancee wanted a quiet wedding over the holidays with only close family invited - and a $1000 budget.  I would have gone into an immediate "Are you crazy?" mode.  Not this gal - in 48 hours she had everything ordered and organized from the church to the dress to the invites - that's where I came in.  She wanted 12 simple invites with a holiday look that involved snowflakes and could go regular mail. And I had a 24 hour deadline! Snowflakes, sparkle, silver embossing and these invites were good to go.  Whew -  now back to my regularly scheduled Christmas preparations! 


The Paper Players are having a CAS snowflake challenge this week!
