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.
This folded rustic invitation fits into a c6 envelope and is held together with bakers twine. Hidden between the folds are a wishing well card along with an envelope for the tear off R.S.V.P card, with room for other inclusions. The envelopes feature a subtle touch of colour with the bunting. The save the date card and menu also feature the bunting design.
Rebecca wanted a simple invitation to reflect the theme of their outdoor wedding set in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland and this cute little invitation offers lots of options!
With room for multiple layers to include all information necessary. Hidden behind the beautiful Peacock feather pattern paper are 2 layers, the Invitation and a wishing well poem followed by a longer layer which holds directions and information for the ceremony venue and reception details. And at the very bottom their names. The final Layer is a gorgeous metallic purple card finished off with a diamante.
Comprising of 5 layers in total, this simple but elegant invitation is held together with a piece of 3mm purple satin ribbon and silver cord giving a modern feel.
Here I’ve used Designer Metallic “Peacock Passion” along with Curious Metallic “Violette” and Glamour Puss “Diamond White” ipaper.
This design can be adapted to many different themes making it a very versatile design.
Chelsea wanted a red, black and white theme for her invitations and choose White for her Invitation along with White inclusions featuring embossing with the added touch of pearls and tied together with a black Satin ribbon. I’ve taken this standard pocket folder and tweaked it a little by adding some embossing to the front flap giving it a more elegant look.
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.
These quality embossed wedding invitations are perfect for the bride on a budget without sacrificing style! Featuring a gorgeous embossed swirl design and 3 diamantes giving this classic design a modern twist. Complete with matching embossed envelope and guest name/ guest name and address printed to both the invitation and envelope.
This is a Red, Black and White version of an earlier post.
The belly band uses ipaper Verona with a red cord tie.
The concept of a Pocket Fold invitation is great, it holds every thing nicely together in one package.
But what if your budget doesn’t allow for the cost of Pocket Folds? You can still have a stunning invitation with a smaller budget.
Here I’ve used the response envelope to bundle together the Invitation suite. Adding a belly band to dress it up.
By adding white labels to the black envelopes will complete the wow factor and still keep within your budget!
