So the next leg of my sister’s wedding invitation journey was to add a touch of pink.
I used the basis of the last invitation – the Baroque Motifs card opening in the middle, and I firstly changed the ribbon to Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon. And I also used Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous shimmer paper.
Next I stamped the square image from Baroque Motifs in Pretty in Pink and then layered it with vellum stamped with “Together Forever” from Together Forever (retired) in Basic Grey. And I added lots more pearls!
And as Cath lives in Canberra and at this point in the creation stage, had not seen any of the cards, except via the photos you are now seeing, I also took pictures of the card open and standing so she could see the space for the actual invitation “to be” inside. So, this is open …
And standing …
Tomorrow I have another mock wedding invitation with even more pink!
The next mock invitation I made introduced the “Together Forever” stamp from the stamp set Together Forever (retired). And we ended up with a winner there – as “Together Forever” is used on the final wedding invitation. We also tried a different way of opening the card – this one opened in the middle.
I stamped the Baroque Motifs in versamark random over the Whisper White cardstock and then I embossed it with silver embossing powder. For this card, I also added a subtle “Mr and Mrs” on the front panel which was stamped in versamark, then heated with Heat & Stick powder, and then heated again with Dazzling Diamonds.
I punched the scallop square out of vellum and layered it over a very subtle “&” from Together Forever.
Two pearls added a touch of class and a white taffeta ribbon and bow tied it all together.
Again, I will be back again tomorrow with the next mock invitation …
