So the next step on the journey to find the perfect wedding invitation was to introduce En Francais. And I turned to the colours of Basic Grey and Whisper White.
Now, Cath had told me she liked this card. So I mocked up something similar in her colours, but a little less busy. I stamped the Baroque Motifs flourish in versamark on vellum paper and then embossed it with silver embossing powder – now that is tricky! The embossing powder melts lovely, but the vellum paper isn’t a fan of too much heat! I then layered the vellum over a stamped background of En Francais.
For the “You’re Invited” stamped in Basic Grey from Sincere Saluations, I decided to try a different combination of punches for the layering of the Basic Grey cardstock. I used the scallop circle punch and two scallop oval punches. This was a winner, as the way I layered the punches is used on the final wedding invitation – although not with this sentiment.
Then I added a touch of white tafetta ribbon and some pearls.
Tune in tomorrow for the next leg of the wedding invitation’s journey …
Thanks for looking 🙂
