This invitation was very basic to create. I did all of the printing on Smoky Slate Cardstock – Invitation, RSVP, Reception Card and Belly Band. I layered the Invitation, Reception Card and Belly Band onto Silver Foil Paper! For the Belly Band, I cut Silver Glimmer Paper into 1-1/2 strips. I actually cut one strip of 1-1/2″ x 12″ and then rotated 90 degrees and cut the rest of the 1-1/2″ strips. Those strips measure 1-1/2″ x 10-1/2″. This way you are using every little piece of the Glimmer Paper! TIP: the glimmer paper goes together best with a hot glue gun!
Unfortunately I don’t have any tips for containing the glittery mess. I did use the Simply Score Tool to score the belly band and make the folds easier. After I was all finished, I rinsed this off with water to clean it up.
Here is a small glimpse of my craziness when I am creating wedding invitations. I probably count each piece of the Invitation 10 times before it is all boxed up. I count as I cut, adhere, finish, double check it’s perfect, and final time. There are many times in between each of those steps as well. I love it though. Weddings make me so happy! Share the love!!!
