The wedding invitation

And here’s the much agonised-over wedding invitation. It’s made using a piece of Bridesmaid Speciality Designer Series Paper, which is cardstock quality so heavy enough for a card base. There are three panels, folded to about DL size, with a strip of distressed Elegant Eggplant down the front. The bands were the tricky bit. It is meant to be removed by sliding it off but, in the event of someone trying to untie the bow, I didn’t want it to look like a pig’s ear. So the band is actually tied together and the heart charm is tied on using purple thread.

Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon - Elegant Eggplant, heart charm, embossing powder
