To add some fun I used a flip it card (using a flip-it die from sizzix) for the second design.
I just love this Jacket style Invitation It truly has the wow factor not to mention BLING!! This is the same shape die I’ve used for the black embossed jacket in my previous post, but it just goes to show how different a design can look by changing the materials. Also using the same coloured jacket and ribbon but adding a buckle changes the look of this design again.
Can you imagine receiving either of these invitations in the mail? Simply stunning!
I’ve used a combination of both smooth card and metallic paper coupled with a pearl embellishment and double-sided satin ribbon to give this invitation a truly exquisite look. The invitation inside is a flip book style.
The embossed theme was carried through in her Seating plan, napkins, favours / bomboniere, guest book and Table numbers.
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!!!!
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”.
