Golden Anniversary Party Invitations

My biggest project to date (aside from these cookies) was to make invitations for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party.  I originally thought it would be about 20 or 30 invitations, but it ended up being 52.  I went through several iterations before finally deciding on this layout and design, but I am thrilled with how they turned out.

I used gold 5x7" cards (on sale at my local Paper Source store), and printed the information on luxe fino cream paper from Paper Source. I used this stamp and this gold ink stamp pad to add a little shimmer.  I downloaded the font for the invitations from, which has been my resource for fun fonts lately.

Not only did I make the invitations, but I also made RSVP cards and inserts which show directions to the party location and information about a nearby hotel where I reserved a block of rooms.  The maps were fun and easy to make - I've made them before, using this tutorial from  

The party is a few short weeks away and I have a few other ideas up my sleeve, so they might be making an appearance on the blog as well, so stay tuned!
