So here they are, and I am pretty happy with them.
The invites are printed on the same cotton paper used for the wedding invitations, and the design is based on an early idea I had for the wedding. I eventually rejected it because the cherry blossoms seemed awfully spring for a fall wedding, and I didn't like how the birds made the invitations so graphic. But I still get to use all my hard work in the end, so it worked out I think.
The backs of the invitations are printed directly onto the paper using a variety of Japanese yuzen paper patterns. I love the way printing the design directly onto the paper makes them so clean, but yet is so vibrant that so far no one believed me when I tried to convince them I hadn't glued the real thing onto the back. I wanted to use a variety of patterns to really showcase the designs, and because I definitely couldn't pick just one. I know no one will really see more than one invitation each (and some people may not look at the back at all), but I will know. And sometimes thats whats important.
And also, I love the navy envelopes which I picked up from PaperSource - they really make the labels pop, and gave me a chance for another design facet.
So excited for the point after the wedding where I open up an Etsy shop or something, to hopefully do this more often!
