Anyway, I thought I would share with you the journey we had together in coming to a final design for her wedding invitation. We had to be creative even in reaching a decision as Cath lives in Canberra and I live in Sydney. So here goes!
We began with a colour scheme – hers being grey and pink. Then I emailed her a few pictures of wedding cards on my blog, and some from the ever-reliable www.splitcoaststampers.com. These cards gave her ideas on stamp sets and sizes. She emailed me a few of her favourite stamp sets and from there I mocked up a first sample inviation. Now, as silver is very close to grey and silver paper has such a lovely shimmer, the first invitation was in silver.
I started with a narrow card with a band. The base was silver cardstock and I layered it with Whisper White on which I’d stamped in Versamark the gorgeous flourish from the Baroque Motifs stamp set. Then I embossed the flourish with silver embossing powder.
The band was made with a strip of Whisper White textured cardstock and then layered with two Curvy Label punched out pieces, Scallop Cirle punched with silver cardstock and Wide Oval. I stamped the a corner from a Vintage Labels (retired) stamp in Melon Mambo and then lastly added two pearls.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a few more samples.
Thanks for looking 🙂
