Christmas Wedding Invitations

100_9842eI wanted to share the wedding invitations and coordinating items that I made in December for a Christmas Wedding. Over the past 14 years, I have worked on designing wedding invitations for many weddings but have never done a wedding long distance.  So I wasn’t sure how this was going to work!  This bride found me through my Etsy store and lives in North Carolina. 100_9842cue This particular wedding invitation was made with Cherry Cobbler Card stock, Metallic Gold card stock and White Shimmer card stock.  I used the Bells and Boughs stamp set from an older Holiday catalog. The background for the wedding invitation Holly is stamped with white ink and embossed with white embossing powder on Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The actual invitation is printed on white shimmer paper using a red ink that is close in shade to the cherry cobbler.  The invitation is layered onto metallic gold card stock and then on the cherry cobbler background. The top of the invitation is a border punched with the valentines heart punch that Stampin’ Up! sold a few years ago.  Then white velvet ribbon is layered on top of the border. The special effect to these invitations is a holly leaf that I stamped and colored with a blender pen.  The leaf is cut out and pearls colored red with a sharpie have been added for the center holly berries. I will post the table cards and coordinating items tomorrow! signature line-003
