This is one of the wedding invitations that I mocked together for my lovely bride-friend.
It was simple and elegant – Chocolate Chip cardstock, with a Very Vanilla textured cardstock band. I’d printed the couple’s names through my printer and then punched them out with my Curvy Label punch. I stamped off the damask from Friends-24-7 and stamped a teeny bit of it in the corner.
Then I had made little tags of information, again punching out with my Curvy Label punch using Very Vanilla textured cardstock and Whisper White. I made little pockets that the tags of information could slide into and used my Scallop Edge punch for one edge. Then I sponged the edge in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped the damask from Friends 24-7.

Brie wasn’t able to organise the kind of invites that she wanted in time and therefore she didn’t end up using this design, but it sure was fun making it!
This is the last of the wedding cards I made for my lovely friend soon-to-be-bride.
I’ve used the same colours as before – So Saffron, Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla. I stamped the En Francais in Gold ink – but stamped off to make the colour lighter. Then I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and covered it with clear embossing powder. I heated the powder so it melted and once that was finished, I sponged So Saffron ink around the Medallion to make it pop out – also known as the technique of emboss resist.
For the sentiment, SNEEK PEEK I used a new Level 3 Hostess stamp set, Occasional Quotes, and used my So Saffron marker to colour and stamp only the “thank you”. I punched the Brushed Gold cardstock with the scallop edge punch and paper pierced a strip of So Saffron cardstock with my mat pack. A few pearls (non-SU) finished it off.
I love this card. The colours really grab me – Rich Razzleberry and Taken with Teal. I’ve used the Scallop Edge punch along the right edge of the card and layered it with Taken with Teal cardstock to give the edge definition. I stamped the flowers from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Happy Moments, in Staz On ink and then coloured in using my blender pens and ink pads. The flower stems are coloured with Certainly Celery.
Don’t you love the bow? The new Rich Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon is simply YUM! lol!
It is hard to see in the photograph, but I’ve stamped the oval stamp from Vintage Labels in Rich Razzleberry on the Large Oval punched layer and also in Taken with Teal on the Wide Oval punched layer. A subtle bit of stamping! Here is a close up:
This would be a great make-and-take card for a workshop!
