Triple Layer Stamping

Standard

IMG_0248IMG_0255

I recently saw this technique for the first time and wanted to try it for my self.

The first card was made by layering three pieces of cardstock down and then stamping, embossing it and then added a matt layer. It really is a very pretty effect. Which got me thinking……..

So for the second card I layered the cardstock but only embossed it. I then inked the embossed areas and once again added a matt layer.

Never Ending Wedding Invitation

Standard

WHITE 1This Never Ending all-in-one Wedding Invitation opens to reveal an Invitation and opens again to reveal a quote and opens again to reveal a Wishing Well and R.S.V.P details and opens again to the beginning! Very cute and lots of different ways to present it. Looks great on natural card as well.

All bundled up

 The design of this invitation came about from a photo of a cake my bride fell in love with. She wanted something that would reflect the theme of the cake.

 She wanted something mainly Red but also including the black and white. The belly band with the pearl accent gives it a funky modern feel. Embossing to the side of the invitation and  flap of the envelope tie’s  the theme together nicely to create a wow factor. A Triangle shaped menu  and place card with embossing and  pearl accents were chosen  for the tables.

$2 challenge

Standard

Recently I was asked to make an invitation for $2 each.  This is one of the ideas I came up with.  I used  a Quickutz die “Heart Frame” which I embossed and then attached it to the front of the folded Invitation. Kind of cute and funky don’t you think?
