This week at Woodware we have been asked to make Wedding Stationary. First of all apologies for the late posting of this project. But on Wednesday night I was struck down with a nasty bug. I hardly left my bed yesterday. But today I am feeling a bit better and am sitting up in bed writing this post.
I am not really a hearts type of person so I wanted to design a very simple set of wedding stationary that would perhaps suit a more mature couple tying the knot. I wanted it to be simple and elegant. Also I think too with the high cost of postage many people are looking to have less dimensional cards that will post at the normal cost.
So here is my selection :
The image I have chosen is the beautifully detailed Stampendous Magnolia stamp. I felt that it really needed very little done with it.
For the main invitation I have embossed it with a detail gold powder. This really makes a difference if your stamp has lots of fine detail as this one has.
To soften the edges and make it have a vintage feel I blended a brown ink over the edges of the card.
Next the evening invitation :
Just stamped in a dark brown in and layered with a green/gold metallic card.
I think nowadays it is quite common to include a RSVP card so another simple card to easily include into your stationary set.
And to finish off my little collection I made a little folder which could be used as a wedding favour. This template came from Splitcoast Stampers and is a tea bag folder. But I often use it as a little gift with a couple of flat chocolates. But you could also put a lottery ticket or scratch card in one side.
The inside is very simple to make.
So I hope you like my selection of stationary. I have always steered away from making wedding stationary. But I have promised to make my daughters stationary when the time comes. At least then it will be a labour of love, but I doubt it will be anywhere as simple as this!!
