Quick and easy invites using the Manhattan Flower embossing folder

Edited: Sorry not sure why this didn't post last night, serves me right for not double checking.

When I went to regional training last month I saw a card very similar to this and was bowled over by how quick and easy it would be to make a batch of elegant wedding invites (or anniversary, than yous etc). The embossing folder does all the work for you.

Stamp set: Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Shimmery White
Ink: Peach Parfait
Organza Ribbon: Whisper White
Embossing Folder: Manhattan Flower
Other: Basic Pearls

The card blank is an A6 portrait of Shimmery White card. The card blank was inserted as far as the fold line into the Manhattan Flower embossing folder and run through the Big Shot. Using a craft knife (or one blade of opened scissors) a slit the same width as the ribbon was cut close to the fold and Organza Ribbon threaded through and tied in a bow. The sentiment was stamped with Peach Parfait ink and a row of the Basic Pearls adhered below (if making a batch you could just attach various combinations of the different size pearls to make the sheet go further). Done! Told you it was quick and easy.

Have a great weekend.
