I love this idea.  This is just what I want my invitations to look like, only in a different color scheme.  About how long did this all take you and how many invitations did you make?

LOVE THEM. GREAT JOB

WHERE CAN I GET THIS ITEMS?

  • Stamp pad – make sure it is pigment ink, not dye ink, as dye ink dries too quickly

     

  • Embossing powder – I used clear for this project

     

  • Heat gun

     

  • Stamp-a-Majig – Optional, but useful

    This looks great…I did embossed butterflys on my save the dates.  I need to post a pic. I actually used a mini hair dryer for mine.

    @damaris2010 – You can find all of those things at Michael’s or even Hobby Lobby minus the stamp-a-majig. I’ve never seen it at Hobby Lobby.

    What size did you cut your invitation layer to? My biggest concern is fitting the wording, stamping=embossing and even a thin ribbon on my 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 invitation layer.

    Would it make a difference if the pigment ink is water-based or not?

    This is basically what the FI and I want to do for our wedding stationary, but with a different stamp. What fonts did you use?

    I can’t even tell you how perfectly amazing your invites are!  They are exactly like what I am looking to do!  As a scrapper, I can’t believe that I never thought of embossing my invites!  You’re a genius! 

     

    Thank you so much for the beautiful ideas! Smile

    This is actually exactly what we are doing, except the black and red are opposite of yours. i didn’t think of pocketfold, but that is what I envisioned. Thanks for the help on that.

    I was just wondering what font you used with Feel Script? Thanks!

    Thanks so much for the link to find the pocketed invites.  I definitely want to use those and was considering doing it myself…what a pain it would be.  This is a good price for them.

    I can’t wait to do mine now!
