Stamping and heat embossing tips to create a wedding invitation

Hello! Welcome back to Sisters Craft Cafe.
 I got to play with the new wedding themed stamp sent to me by the generous BEE HAPPY CRAFTS. I am a big fan of stamping and all things related to weddings. So, I quickly prepared my materials for a card project.





STAMPING TIP:

Before using a brand new acrylic stamp, it is best to rub an eraser on the side where you rub the ink to remove that invisible "plastic film".  By doing this, the ink application will be even.


Next step, rub the acrylic stamp on the embossing ink pad.

Stamp the wet acrylic stamp on a piece of paper, then pour some embossing powder on it.
Turn on the heat gun and apply heat on the stamped word.
You'll see the results when the powder start to melt.



Assemble the wedding invitation envelope..

I used Kraft paper, lace, trim, and die cut doily and flower, and heart bead.

This will hold the actual invitation cards. If you have a good printer, you can print out the cards and adhere it to this envelope.  I like small cards, so this one can fit 4x6 cards. You can create a larger holder if you like. 5x7 and 6x6 are the ideal card sizes.



This is a very easy, shabby chic project when you have the basic tools on hand.

OTHER PROJECT WITHOUT THE HEAT GUN

Don't worry if you have no heat gun, you can still create a fabulous card using the sentiment stamps.





Thank you very much for stumbling upon my blog :-)  and thanks to  BEE HAPPY CRAFTS
for the Kaiser Craft wedding sentiment stamps.
