When it comes to invites, gorgeous detailed elegant cards are lovely and really help to enhance the fact of how special the the day is going to be. Just simple invites can be just as gorgeous but with little time spent on them. Doesn't mean the day will be any less special.
With this invite, I simply took the pop up adoring die by Create and Craft and placed in my chosen area of the card stock. The White Linen card measures at 5 3/4" This doesn't have a cutting edge around it so when run through your ebosser, grand calibur etc, the design will be cut in the card stock and will stay situated there. Then I Matt and layer onto Chrismtas Red card - measuring 4mm bigger the White Linen card.
Before attaching the matted and layered card to the card black. I wrapped a piece of red satin ribbon round the card and then attached to the card blank. I had an "invitation" stamp in my own stash so stamped in my chosen area. Added a hand tied bow and a few pearls to complete the invitation.
For the insert, I printed out my chosen text on to white Supersmooth and matted and layered on to matching red card.
The invitation is now complete.
