The wedding season is approaching quickly and today I wanted to show you that anyone can create an elegant wedding ensemble without breaking the bank. This entire set was made using plain white cardstock that was elevated to something special with help from products by Imagine.
Time: 60+minutes (depending on numbers being made)
How to Create the Wedding Invitation
Die cut card base, matching panels and filigree hearts from plain white cardstock. Mist the card, panels, and heart with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle and let dry naturally.
Die-cut solid heart from lavender cardstock.
Spread an even layer of Iridescent Purple Creative Medium over the heart using a palette knife. At this time, spread a layer of the Purple Creative Medium over a large piece of black cardstock and set both aside to dry.
Sponge Gothic Purple Staz On ink over a sheet of Vertigo Film.
Pounce Grape Jelly Memento Ink on the craft mat, spritz with Ink Potion No. 9, scrunch up a length of white rayon seam binding and dab it in the ink mixture. Set aside to dry.
Once all of the elements have dried trim two pieces of the Vertigo Film to the size of the filigree flaps. Adhere the Vertigo Film to the card using On Point Glue sandwiching the film between the card flap and extra filigree screen. Adhere the Sparkle filigree heart to the lavender heart using On Point Glue. Die cut letters and “&” sign from the black Creative Medium covered cardstock and adhere to the center of the heart.
Adhere one end of the ribbon to the card, adhere the other end to the heart. Wrap the ribbon around the card and secure the heart to the card with a Velcro dot. Insert computer generated invitation panel to the inside of the card.
How to Make the Place Cards
Die cut filigree design on a strip of cardstock. Spritz the die cut strips with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz.
Tie a piece of the dyed seam binding around each place card. Cut a piece of scrap cardstock 1×2 inch and fold in half to form a small tent. Adhere the tent to the back of the place card.Write each person’s name on the place cards using Grape Jelly Memento Dual Tip Marker.
