My friend Stacey is getting married on Oct 31.; I was honored to have her ask me to create her invitations. I only had to make ten, but I had a lot of fun. The best part was that I didn't CASE the design -- I created it on my own, even the idea of using a gatefold design! I didn't know I had it in me.
At first her fiancee said that he wanted Jack O'Lanterns and leaves, but he switched it to bats against a gray background. I only had two papers that fit this criteria, we chose the one from the Spook Alley -- the only thing I don't like is the distressed look, if you don't know better it looks like I messed up the paper.
Here is the front of the card. I made the bats using the edge punch part of the Martha Stewart Around the Page bats set.
She really likes them!
