Cream and black

Standard

Caz wanted a simple invitation with modern clean lines.  She chose cream and black which was the theme of her dress.  Although not shown in the photo, she chose a black envelope with a cream label. The flap of the envelope was embossed with the same pattern used for her clear bombonaries/ wedding favours.  I’ve used the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder and marshmallow card from ipaper.

Fairytale invitation # 2

Standard


This is a take 2 on Bec’s Fairytale invitation. I’ve made 2 match book style invitations. The first one I’ve used the Cryogen White for both the cover and the page.  The second invitation I’ve used clear Acetate for the cover and Cryogen White for the page. The beauty of this invitation is that extra pages can be added for extra information and depending on the look the bride is going for the pages could be different lengths or they  could be all the same.  A different colour could be used for the page of the Acetate invitation giving it a different look again. If I wanted to be energetic I could cover the embossed coach with my Zig two-way pen and then cover it with dazzling diamonds, IF I was energetic. lol    Both have been tied together with fine silver cord and have beads knotted at the ends, however thin satin ribbon could be used or organza ribbon tied into a simple bow .  Oh the possibilities!!!!  

 

FairyTale Invitation

Standard

 

Bec wanted something to reflect a fairytale wedding, with softness, sparkle and a touch of purple.  Here I’ve used a Cuttlebug embossing folder from the Happily Ever after/night at the ball set.   The paper I’ve used  is Cryogen White which is an pearlescent, iridescent metallic paper from i paper.  Although hard (click on the photo to get a closer look) to see this paper has thousands of little glittery particles which creates a magical feel to this invitation. The simple organza ribbon adds a soft finishing touch.  The quote I’ve used is one of my favourites using the fonts “Invitation” and “Some Weatz Swashes”.  My friend Sylvia a photographer (www.flickr.com/photos/sylviaaustin1) was kind enough to take this photo as my little camera just didn’t do justice!
