Ornate Elegance Header Black & Ivory Wedding Invitation

With the wedding season upon us, I thought I'd share with you an contemporary idea for a Pocketfold Wedding Invitation using the new Tonic Studios Ornate Elegance Header Dies.
Tonic Studios Ornate Elegance Header Dies Wedding Invitation Idea
Card Recipe:
Tools: Tonic Studios Ornate Elegance Header Dies, Boudoir Square Base, Scallop Circle Layering DiesGrand Calibur 
Paper and Card: Stardream, Conqueror
Embellishments: narrow double satin ribbon, flatback pearls, crystals hearts

Black & Ivory Contemporary Wedding Invitation Set
The beauty of this design is that the shape of the lattice heart header die makes it so easy to line up centrally, so I used it to die cut both the top of my pocket and also the pocket flap.  I then threaded narrow double satin ribbon through the punched hole border and accented the central heart motif with crystal hearts.

I then created a coordinating invitation using my favourite die ever (but I think my regular readers know that!), the Boudoir Square base, with I decorated with flatback pearls, and then topped with the wedding invitation wording die cut with a the scallop layering dies.

Here's one final look at this invitiation set.  Although black as an accent colour may not be to everyone's taste for a wedding invitation, I think it gives a lovely contemporary, chic effect.  What do you think?

Finally, please do take a look here at my post about my friend Milly's exciting new venture, I would very much appreciate just a minute or so of your time to take a look.

Thank you and I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

  8. A stunning an really classy wedding invitation. I really hope that some independent retailers will get the header dies after the exclusivity period although there are quite a few who do not want to stock products that are exclusive to C&C for 60 days, as they look just brilliant.
