Blackberry Bliss Wedding Invite

Hi all, back again to share another craft make 🙂

This  time I was inspired to make a Wedding Invitation card. I wanted to achieve a laser cut effect and I knew I wanted to use Blackberry Bliss cardstock by Stampin’ up! It’s my current favourite! I paired it with a warm creamy white card for contrast.

Here is the end result:

I had the basic idea in my mind. I started to gather together the supplies that I needed by getting my cardstock ready and trimming it to size – the closed size is 6”x 6”.

I then cut the cream Panel to 6″ x 6″ and used a border die by Memory Box called Bursting Berry Vine.

I then went on to add my chosen wedding sentiment – stamped in the colour matched Blackberry Bliss by Stampin’ up! – and added the lace. The stamp I used was part of a free gift set which was  included with a craft magazine a few years ago.

I then went on to the inside panel. I stamped with the same ink as before and used the Flowering Flourishes stamp set, also by Stampin’ up!

Before I adhered the panel down, I noticed that a closure of some description would be needed. I chose an off white organza ribbon so as not to distract from the main image, but would still work with the over all design. I did not want the ribbon adhered to the back of the invite card, as the adhesive would be visible through the sheer ribbon; This is why I chose to adhere it underneath the inside panel.

I added my personalized stamp – e bay purchase – to the reverse of the card and also decorated the envelope.

I always like to decorate envelopes as I think its like a sneak peek for the main design, plus I get to craft that little bit longer 🙂

For a finishing touch I added a few small diamantes to the flower flourishes and the card front – I used a pale purple colour and clear diamantes. I just wanted a slight sparkle for this invite, not an overload of gems.

Thank you for popping by, I hope that you feel inspired and enjoy some creative times.

Take care and Happy crafting!!

  1. Hello Jenny. What a lovely result. I really like the die, it’s such a delicate looking result, and I adore the bling! It looks like a vintage brooch. Sort of thing I’d be attracted to. (like a magpie! lol)

    Haven’t ‘freebies’ on magazines got so much better than they used to be? I can honestly say that the stamps I use the most are ones which I’ve had free with magazines. I’ve had some fabulous ones.

    It’s a lovely looking card, and one which I can tell you had fun making. Your words on this post all tell me that you loved making this one. Well done, my clever crafter blog pal!
