I was very honored to be asked to make some invitations for a marriage reception. It took place in early November so they used fall colors for decorations and I tried to find some fall colors to use on the invites as well. I really liked the final product.
The base of the invite is a chocolate brown cardstock. And the deep red card stock is stamped with a forever and ever and ever stamp using VersaMark to create the watermark affect. I just stamped it over and over and over... Then I just stamped the cake on sparkle paper and used watercolors and Stickles to color. After that I mounted in the marigold color and put on w/pop-dots and tied some organdy ribbon.
The reception was supposed to be casual but not too casual. I hoped that w/the destressing of the paper it made the invite a bit casual, but we chose a font for the invite wording that was fun but a little fancy at the same time.
Hope you like...
