Wedding Invitations

 I share my card making passion with a group of ladies every month and this Saturday we will be making 'different' invitations. 
One thing I have learnt when you pass on your knowledge to others is that what you like is not always what they like and never more so does this apply, than to greeting cards. With that in mind, and given the ladies who want to learn about invitations, I have to put my own taste aside and design what appeals to others.
So this group will be making the two cards below. The long one is actually a wallet card that has been glitzed up with all things shiny and feathers. I used kraft board for the wallet and the die cuts were made out of hand made paper, using X-Cut dies. The inserts, and there can be lots of them in this wallet, are all kraft board onto black card.
The second card is a four-flap card (my This was made using shimmer card and the outer card was embellished with hand made paper with a suede floral pattern. Very sumptuous, as both these cards are. I'm looking forward to feed back from my ladies - I hope I have hit the button on the nose this time and left my own preferences in my pocket!! What do your think??
