Welcome to the Spring 2010 Royal Blog Tour. I chose to showcase the Wedding Sweet stamp set for this tour since I have had a few wedding projects in mind that I wanted to play around with. This way, I actually got my ideas made up into samples - yeah!
I wanted to not only create a wedding invitation, but also a wedding favor of some sort. I decided to use Almost Amethyst along with Sage Shadow and Whisper White for these samples.
You will notice that the bride and grooms names are peaking out of the top of the invitation. I also made a belly band out of cardstock and added a flower accent. This band helps to hold the card closed. You could certainly do a flatter flower (or flatten this one out more) in order to put it into an envelope and mail it. I just happen to be going nuts making these flowers and wanted to put it on my invitation as well.
The Stampin' Up! supplies I used to create this wedding set are:
Stamp Set: Wedding Sweet
Cardstock - Almost Amethyst, Sage Shadow and Whisper White
Ink: Almost Amethyst and Sage Shadow
Accessories: Big Shot, legant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Bigz XL Bag with Scallops Die, Little Leaves Sizzlits Die, Scallop Circle Punch, Crimper, Paper Piercer and Mat and a Silver Brad
Here is a closer shot of the wedding favor I made. It is hard to see the scallop circle flap on the box since it is covered with ribbon and my flower accent.
When you open the wedding invitation, you will see all the information about the wedding on the top. The bottom of the card contains a pocket with the RSVP. I layed the band for the card across the pocket portion of the card.
Here is a close-up of my flower and leaves on my band. I put a Whisper White flower on my invitation and an Almost Amethyst flower on my favor box.
