I used the heart stamp from the set Punch Potpourri, which is a Level One Hostess Gift. I really like this set as each image has a coordinating punch which makes cutting out your images so much quicker and easier! You gotta love that!!
I simply wrapped some silver cord a few times around the card and raised the heart over this with Stampin' Dimensionals. The "you're invited" text is actually from the Compliments to the Chef stamp set.
I printed out the Bride and Groom text on to some Card Stock A4 White Vellum and then punched them out with the Scallop Oval Punch. The only think I don't like about using vellum is what adhesive to use as no matter what type I choose it still seems to show through. I might try some Mini Glue Dots next time, rather than my snail adhesive!
If you look closely you may notice that this "you're invited" text is darker than the other, that is because I embossed this one make it bolder.Both my heart images were inked up with Versmark and then Elegant Eggplant ink before stamping on to Whisper White cardstock and then Clear Embossed, prior to punching out with the Full Heart Extra-Large Punch.
I think I actually prefer this placement setting with the Brushed Silver cardstock, although on the other one I really like the impact of the silver thread over the Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Not sure that I like the ticket-corners on this design, what do you think?
Which design to you like the best or do you like specific elements in each?
