Learn how to Make a Tri-fold Wedding Anniversary Invitation

by Roni Johnson

Learn how to Make a Tri-fold Wedding Anniversary Invitation

It’s approaching the traditional wedding season so I thought I would create a quick and simple wedding invitation that could also be used for weddings and for anniversary celebrations. I was inspired to switch it up a bit because my husband and I will be celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary in a couple of years. Quite the milestone these days. I love sparkle so I knew the Sheer Shimmer line was the way to go with this design.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Cut a 4.25 x 6” white cardstock panel. Use tape to mask off one-third of the panel. Use Frost Sheer Shimmer Stix to apply one or two layers of sparkle to the panel. When you remove the mask the frosty shimmer will become more apparent. Let this layer dry completely.


Step 2

Stamp a large pattern design over the frosted area using VersaMark ink. I used a zentangle-looking swirl pattern.


Step 3

Sprinkle the pattern image with White Embossing Powder, shake off excess and return it to the jar. Heat the embossing powder to melt. You now have a lovely, shimmery white underneath the textured embossed area.


Step 4

Affix grey sparkly ribbon to the bottom of the embossed design using Tear It! Tape.


Step 5

Color two hearts with Sheer Shimmer Spritz. In keeping with the simple, elegant design I used Pewter and Frost.


Step 6

Cut a dark grey cardstock panel 6.25 x 12”; score at 4.5” and 9”. This creates the tri-fold panels.


Step 7

Use Tear It! Tape to adhere the panel to the front of the card.


Step 8

Affix the hearts to the card front using double stick foam tape.


Step 9

Prepare cardstock panels for the inside of the card using Frost and Pewter Sheer Shimmer Spritz.


Step 10

Print and die-cut information about the upcoming nuptials or other celebration as is the case in the example.


Step 11

Apply Morning Mist VersaFine Clair to the edge of each die-cut using a sponge dauber. This will give the edge some contrast. Affix the die cut information to the inside of the card.


Step 12

The outside of the card has the two hearts and the ribbon.


Step 13

Add more sparkly ribbon to the inside panels as the final touch.

Learn How To Create A DIY White Wedding Invitation With Texture

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello everyone, today I have a quick and elegant card. This technique would be perfect for a wedding invitation. I create the shimmer and texture using the new Sheer Shimmer Stix in Frost and an embossing folder. The base of my card is Whisper White cardstock and I cut a second layer using the same color of cardstock, but apply the shimmer-texture technique for a very cool tone on tone look.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Determine the area that you want to paint and add texture. I used post it tape to obtain a straight line.


Step 2

Evenly apply the Sheer Shimmer Frost with the Stix Dauber. Let the paper dry naturally, it takes a few seconds only.


Step 3

Without removing the post it tape, take an embossing folder of your preference and align the borders to only emboss the painted area. Pass the sandwich through your cutting machine.


Step 4

Remove the post it tape and stamp your message on the upper area. I used VersaMark and embossing powder in Gold to stamp my message. It is an image included on the stamp set Happily Ever After from The Rabbit Hole Designs.


Step 5

Resize your layer and paste it directly over the card base. If you want to add more decorations or details you can do it before to paste the decorated layer on to the card base.
