Invitation - Part 1

When we started looking at invitations, there was one in particular that caught our eye:

Classic and formal, but with a twist: a dark background with with white lettering. From Crane's. Which also means that it was going to be at least $1000 over our invitation budget.

Given that it is extremely difficult to get light text on dark paper, thermography was ruled out. And letterpress was just outside of our budget.

But after seeing Mrs. Emerald's posts about her invitations, I was inspired to do a little designing of my own. And with the Open Office Draw design program available for free, how hard could it be?

Turns out, a whole lot more complicated than I thought. Let's say for now that there is often a reason why things are free...
