The Cuttlebug Spot - Invitation
I love making wedding stationery and when I saw the the challenge this week from The Cuttlebug Spot was for an invitation, I thought that I'd like to share my latest wedding stationery with you. It's for the chap who was my son's Best Man last year. He is to be married in the Spring and all the wedding stationery is my gift to the bride and groom.
I prefer to use a technique which eliminates the chance of things going awry when there are large numbers of cards to be made, so I don't quite know where I'd be without my Cuttlebug, which lives on my workdesk and is always within arm's reach!
This invitation is an illustration of how much I rely on my trusty 'BUG!
The centrepiece is comprised of Nesties Labels dies, 2 used together using a magnetic mat a) to aid positioning and b) to aid embossing. I then embossed the middle diecut, in the Swirl embossing folder. The heart and initials were also cut from Cuttlebug dies.
I always add double-sided tape to the back of the card before I cut with the dies so that in effect they form stickers, which means I just have to peel off the backing before applying to my projects.
The small pearl was added as the bride will be wearing some family pearls for her special day and I wanted to make reference to this in the stationery.
I hope you like it!
