wedding stationary: inside & out

One theme this month at my favorite stamping place, Papertrey Ink, is cards 'inside and out'.  Perfect!  I like to go bonkers with coordinated touches inside the card, on the back of the card, and on the front & back of the envelopeSometimes I stamp a tiny, coordinated image on the return address label.  But I never take the time to document it.  So for today, I've got a wedding gift and card for some dear friends of mine, Brandon & Evelyng.

First, the card, front: (has hard to see bling; flourish on envelope is avocado & chocolate).  The grosgrain ribbon was ivory, colored avocado with my Copics.  They do an AMAZING job, although the ribbon is rather stiff after wards.  This little tip has come in handy for altering ribbon, brads, gems, buttons... I love it!  Those markers are really money well spent for me.

and the inside:  (here is used a double mat - the gift notecards have the same inner stamp but with a single mat & monochromatic look.

and the back:

The stationary gift set was the All Boxed Up template over at PTI, with six notecards:


That's it!  I hope you liked it - I loved putting it together!

YES, I not only like it; I LOVE it!!! Also have to say I totally agree with you on the BONUS use of coloring so MANY things with my COPICS -- truly makes them a GOOD investment!!! ;~)
