Fall Autumn Wedding Pocketfold Invitation {Updated}

Here is an updated version of my pocketfold fall/autumn wedding invitation. It’s 5″x7″ when folded. The invitation panel was made with My Digital Studio and the leaves are hand stamped, from Season of Friendship stamp set.

To keep it closed, I made a belly band out of card stock, embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. The medallion is die cut with Apothecary Accents Framelits, stamped with “You’re Invited” from For the Bride stamp set. I paper pierced around the edges with the new Essentials Paper Piercing Pack. Then, to define the edges a bit, I sponged soft suede ink on the edges of the medallion.

Another option for the closure is the medallion with an initial. I stamped the A with Early Espresso ink and added the leaves from Season of Friendship stamped in More Mustard ink around the edges.

Here is the view of the pocketfold invitation fully opened. Enclosure cards fit into the pocket.

Special Delivery–It’s a Boy

I made this card a while ago, while I was pregnant with my son, or very soon after he was born. I can’t remember July and August–it was all a blur. Two hours of sleep a night does that to your brain!

I can remember this: I used things from the new 2012-2013 Stampin UP catalog! The base is In Color Midnight Muse, a great navy blue and I’m not a navy blue person. To brighten things up, I used Pool Party card stock, another In Color, texturized with the Fancy Fan Letterpress plate. I inked up the plate with Versamark (you could also use Pool party ink) and then ran it through the Big Shot for some texture and pattern.

The stamp is from Special Delivery, a new hostess set. I inked up the boy silhouette with Midnight Muse ink and stamped it on Whisper White card stock. I layered it with Daffodil Delight and Pool Party circles.

Some of the other elements used on the card are Lattice Bigz Die, Summer Smooches DSP, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, Daffodil Delight Stitched 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, and Whisper White 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

Summer Silhouettes 2 Ways

I made 2 versions of this card, one basic and another slightly stepped up. Using a combination of bright In Colors, grounded with Basic Gray and White as neutrals, the card feels cheery but not busy.

First up is the basic version. I used the Summer Silhouettes stamp set for the flowers and Friendly Phrases for the sentiment. The colors for the flowers are Summer Starfruit, Lucky Limeade, and Primrose Petals.

The strip across the front is Summer Starfruit card stock, layered with Pool Party card stock that I ran through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder for texture.

For the stepped up version, I used one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits to cut out the sentiment on Whisper White card stock. Then, I added an In Color Dahlia in Primrose Petals and adhered the label to the card with stampin dimensionals.
