Cream and Brown Wedding Invitation using rubber stamps

July, 31st 2009












Use rubber stamped images to add decorative text and images to your wedding stationery.

To make the Wedding Invitation you will need:

  • 144x144 square of cream pearlescent card
  • Cream stardream paper
  • Dark brown card
  • 15mm double sided satin brown ribbon
  • Clear rubber stamp Wedding Set by Francoise Read (FRCL001)
  • Acrylic block
  • Versamark clear ink pad
  • Gold embossing powder
  • Crafters heat tool
  • Adhesive tape pen or double sided sticky tape

Print your invitation wording onto the stardream paper and trim to 125mm x 125mm. Cut the brown card to 130mm x 130mm. A paper trimmer or small guillotine is best for this - or we can cut this for you using our custom cutting service.

Take the Wedding Invitation text stamps and place on the acrylic block, leaving at least 20mm between the words. Mark the position of the ribbon lightly on the 144mm cream pearl card (this will be covered by the ribbon when finished).

Ink the stamp using the versamark pad and stamp onto the card.

With a creased sheet of A4 paper underneath, cover the stamped image with gold embossing powder and then let the excess fall back onto the paper. Tap the card gently to remove any flecks of powder sticking to the card (or use a fine paintbrush). Pop the excess powder back in the pot.

Now heat the image with the heat tool to melt and set the embossing powder - you will see it change clearly.

Using the smaller of the entwined hearts stamps from your set, stamp and emboss the image onto the corner of the printed paper.

To assemble:

Cut a length of ribbon 25cm long. and secure around the middle of the card with an adhesive tape pen or double sided tape.

Layer the printed paper onto the brown card and then attach to the cream card to complete your invitation.
