Quick and easy wedding invites


Just chilling out now after a great day with a great bunch of ladies (my feet are killing me - didn't realise quite how long I was stood or walking around, lol). Had a really fun day at our Stamptacular today. As always, we tried to fit too much in and ended up rushing through the last few projects, but hope everyone was pleased with the value for money! Heehee.

I'll share some pix of the Stamptacular over the next few days, but in the meantime this is a quick wedding style invite that I shared at a workshop on Monday. It's quick and easy to produce in the large batches that you need for such an occasion.


Recipe
Stamp set: Four Frames, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Ink: Early Espresso
Punch: Decorative Label
Embossing Folder: Elegant Bouquet

The card blank is an A6 of Early Espresso. The mat of Very Vanilla was run through the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder before adhering it direct to the front of the card. Using Early Espresso ink, the Four Frames flourish was stamped onto Very Vanilla. Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, the sentiment was stamped in the centre in the same ink and the complete image was punched out with the Decorative Label. Another Decorative Label was punched from Early Espresso card, cut in half horizontally and matted behind the sentiment, before popping up on dimensionals on the card front.


Inside:
Stamp set: Cornelli Lace
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso

The text of the invite was computer generated and printed onto Very Vanilla card. The Cornelli Lace jumbo wheel was stamped along the edge of the insert in Early Espresso ink before adhering to the inside of the card.

Hope you had a great weekend.
