Wedding Invitation samples #10 and 11

Two invitations today, one black and white the other navy and cream, both in a more traditional style.

I matted white card onto black card, cutting a small rectangle from the bottom right of the white card, added wide black satin ribbon, across the card and topped it with white silver edged ribbon and a black silver edged ribbon bow, both silver edged ribbons were threaded through the diamond shaped ribbon slider before being fixed to the card blank. I printed the names and cut them out with a small rectangle die adding gems either side to fill the space.

I matted a square of navy pearl card onto cream card and then punched a border from some more cream card - I die cut various sized squares from cream and navy card and layered them up with foam pads, turned them to make a diamond shape and  arranged some in the centre of the navy panel finishing off with the couples names and a couple in the centre of the cream strip, I threaded ribbon through the diamante ribbon slider, fixed the ribbon in place over the punched strip and then added it the strip to the right hand edge of the card.

Black, cream and pearl card from Craft Creations
Gems, ribbon slider and ribbons from Meiflower

Five more to go and I will probably double them up from now on to get through them, they seem to have been dragging on for ages.

Thanks for stopping by
and taking a look,

These are both fabulous Colette... but if I had to pick, I'd go for the blue and cream - as I love the diamante buckle! When you say you've five more to go... are they for someone you know who's getting married? They're going to have difficulty choosing if so! LOL

Two very stylish cards. Love the second one though, very different colour combo but very delicious! :) x
