Hi there! Today, I have a unique wedding card technique to share with you. By using this technique each wedding invitation will have its own unique subtleties. I used Desert Sand Memento Ink but you can use the colors used in your wedding decor. Embossing folders can be used in several ways and it is fun and simple. Now that you can get wedding invitations in craft stores you can add your personal touch to the make it more special just by pasting the decorated layer on top.
Time: 20 minutes
Select an embossing folder, ink the flat layer of the folder with the color of ink of your preference. Since this is a wedding card, I used Desert Sand Memento Ink because it matches well with gold and enhances the white. You can apply the ink directly with the ink pad or using a brayer. Insert the card stock on your embossing folder and pass the sandwich through your cutting machine.
On a separate piece of card stock with the same color of the card base, stamp the couple image using VersaMark. Sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder and use a heat tool to set.
To create a matching frame for the couple image, I inked the edges of a rectangle with the VersaMark inkpad.
Then I sprinkled a heavy amount of Gold Embossing Powder and melted the powder with the heat tool.
If you want to add more details this is the moment. In my sample, I tie a bow in the ribbon around of the embossed background and pasted it directly over the card base. Then I pasted the main stamped image over the decorated card base using double-sided foam tape.
