Designer Series Paper Invitations

There is also a Sneak Peek NEW Alphabet Stamp Set for 20% Off! You can order online via My Website or contact me with your order. Or why not Host a Workshop or Catalog Shop and spread the DSP joy with your paper-crafting family and friends?

This is a bridal shower invitation I made at a dear friend's request. I used th Patterns DSP in Riding Hood Red to coodinate with the bride-to-be's wedding color. Then accented with gold and white. The focal image and sentiment are heat embossed in Gold on Riding Hood Red, then layered on Brushed Gold Metallic card stock.

The invitation is a Double Pocket Card, which consists mostly of a special way to fold the DSP. This picture shows the pockets, and their inserts. The larger insert is the invitation wording. The smaller insert is the bridal registry information. Both inserts are embellished with gold, organdy ribbon and a red staple. A picture of the engaged couple, accented by the Photo Corners Punch, is the finishing touch.

The Double Pocket Card has so many possibilities! I think it would be AWESOME as a wedding invitation! I covered up the left, inside flap of the open invitation for this picture, however, the invitation wording could go there layered on, keep the pic of the couple, then use the larger insert for RSVP card and map/directions, and the smaller insert for bridal registry information. Or how about for an Anniversary invitation? Or a Baby Shower? Or just a super nice WOW card for a special someone with surprises tucked in the pockets? ENJOY!
