Hi, Lakeside Stamper Readers!
This is an invitation I designed for my niece Laura and her now husband Chris. Laura and Chris had a “Leaf Mask” theme for their wedding. Of course the color they chose was Sage Shadow, now retired, but, I bought lots of packs ahead of time because I knew it was their color. Here are some pictures of the invitation:
For the masks I made a template out of a manila file folder (only the best) and cut it out. I used the template to trace around onto Very Vanilla Card Stock and hand cut, yes hand-cut, every mask out. Then each mask was stamped in VersaMark with the Stampin’ Up! Leaf Lines Stamp Set and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I colored each mask with Stampin’ Write Markers. After stamping and coloring I cut out the eye holes. I then made another stencil template for the lips. I used the stencil with a Dauber and Cherry Cobbler Ink to make the lips. Behind each eye I layered a piece of Basic Black Card Stock. On each cheek of the mask I punched two slits to tie the Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Ribbon through. These were a lot of work but they are truly one of a kind and have received many compliments on them.
For the inside I computer generated the text, and printed it out on Very Vanilla Card STock. Then I stamped more leaves randomly in Cajun Craze Ink and hand-colored them. I adhered the Very Vanilla text onto Cajun Craze Card Stock as shown.
This is the “Save the Date” card.
Wedding invitations are a very personal choice and this is exactly what Laura and Chris wanted. I gave them choices of style, colors and themes. Right down to the ribbon the choice was theirs.
