Cutting out Wedding Invatations

So, this week I have been working on the wedding invitations.
Katie and I are arguing over who gets to make the invitations. We both love doing this craft type stuff. Being taht I have posssions of the printed peices, and posession is 9/10ths of the law, I get to do more then she does. I do have to send half to her for her to finish though.
Here is my stack of printed invites prior to being cut. I am cutting them on my Fiskers rotary cutter with the deckle blade.

I have a few of them cut here. I did mess up on one, you can see it on the side there. 10 1/4, 5 5/8, 5 3/8, rotate paper, 4 1/2. Those are my cuts. That just trims the long sides.

Here is my completed stack of invites. Now I just need to to trim the top and bottoms. Katie did let me do this job all by myself. It isn’t so much fun.

I am having trouble finding the black cardstock that we want for the background sheet. I am going to go check out a scrapbooking store this weekend.

If I can’t find what I am looking for, I am going to try to dye some of the cardstock I have black. I am thinking that letting it dry on crumpled up seran wrap will give me some neat textures. I will play with it.
