As wedding season is almost upon us, I thought that today I would create an elegant wedding invitation using just silver and white, complete with an embossed vellum overlay. This is a very straightforward design; but, looks like it cost a lot more money!!
If you have just found me as you were looking for inspiration for creating your own wedding invitations then “Hello and welcome!!”. If you are a follower looking for ideas for wedding cards and such like, then the wording can of course be altered to reflect whatever the occasion is. The card is a standard A6 size.
A6 card blank
Mirri card – 10.1 x 14.4cm
White card stock – 9.9 x 14.2cm
Vellum – 9.9 x 14.2cm
Mirri and white card scraps to die cut the sentiment panels
“Watering Can” Archival Ink
“White Opal” Liquid pearls; Ranger
Glossy accents; Ranger
Flourish stamp, from my stash, no idea of brand unfortunately
“Silver” embossing powder; Papermania
“Wedding Words” stamp set; Indigo Blu
“Background” stamp by Studio Light
Firstly, to reduce the bulk of the card, I gutted the centre of the mirri panel using one of my dies (that will come in handy for another project). I then glued the silver mirri layer onto the card blank and set aside.
Working on the white layer of card, I stamped this with Archival Ink using a background stamp by Studio Light and then stuck this onto the card blank.
Taking the piece of vellum, I stamp and heat embossed a flourish stamp in silver on the bottom part of the vellum and then stuck this on top of the stamped and coloured card topper, by using 4 small dots of Glossy Accents (these dots will be covered over at the end of the project).
For the text, I stamped and heat embossed the words “Wedding Invitation” onto a scrap of white card, before cutting this out using a stitched rectangle die, and matted it onto a die cut piece of the silver mirri, before sticking these on top of the vellum panel
To finish, I added 4 dots of Ranger Liquid Pearls (to hide the 4 glue dots).
I hope that you enjoyed this project and if you did, please like this post and follow my blog for more ideas and inspiration. I am also on social media, you can find me on Facebook and also on Instagram.
