Hi Stampers.  Yesterday, I showed you a sample I made for a Quinceanera invitation.  Today’s card shows you how I took the same idea, changed the colors and made it into a wedding invitation.

As you can see, the design is very similar.  So, the dimensions I mentioned in yesterdays post are the same as for this card.  The differences are that I used Basic Black for the cardbase and Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the accent color.  The wording was printed onto the Whisper White cardstock with my printer prior to cutting and stamping.  The swirls were stamped using the Momento ink pad in Tuxedo Black.
Wedding invitation 1 closedFor the belly band, I used one of the circle framelits to cut out the circle from silver glimmer paper.  I punched out the heart using the heart punch on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  The “B” was cut out using the Little Letters framelit dies. For the flap I used the largest Apothocary framelit to cut the edge of the card.

Stampin’ Tip: I placed the card onto the big shot and lined up the edge of the cardstock with the edge of the large Apothocary framelit.  I placed the top cutting plate of the big shot so that it only covered the half of the framelit I wanted it to cut and rolled it through.  The part of the framelit that did not have the top plate covering it, did not cut.

I then placed the top of the card into the Decorative Dots embossing folder and ran it through the big shot.  This was my first try at a wedding invitation in these colors.  Since these are the colors my son and his fiance chose for the wedding and I will be making their invites.  I’m sure you will be seeing many more examples in the months to come. 🙂
