Handmade & Handstamped Wedding Invitation

Handstamped Wedding Invitation

I was asked to come up with some wedding invitation samples the other day.  I thought I would go ahead and share this one with you because I like it so much!  (I don’t think the bride will mind as it’s nothing like the final invitation will look like.)  I wish it wasn’t so hard to photograph but with all the white it gets a bit difficult!

Wedding Sweet stamp set

The invitation is 9 1/4″ x 4″ in size so it will fit a #10 size envelope (business size to most of us).  I used clear rhinestone brads at the top of the invitation to hold the two sheets together.  Half pearls look very pretty there as well, however, they do nothing to keep the pieces together!

The swirlies you see are from the Wedding Sweet stamp set and embossed in Iridescent Ice.  Iridescent Ice is a clear embossing powder with fine glitter in it.  The embossing gives a hint of texture and sparkle to the invitation without being overwhelming.

Vintage Label & Warm Words stamp sets

At the bottom of the invitation I used the Bride Specialty paper and then made a little medallion using the Sale-A-Bration Vintage Labels and Warm Words stamp sets embossed in silver on brushed silver cardstock.  The medallion is being held in place with our lovely organza ribbon.

Inside the wedding invitation

I’m afraid I don’t actually have writing inside the invitation but I think you can picture what it would look like.  Across the bottom of the top page I used the Sale-A-Bration Scallop Trim Border Punch and then when you open up the invitation the medallion is still visible.  I really should have trimmed down the Bride specialty paper a little more, it didn’t need to take up quite that much of the page.

I hope this is inspirational to you!  I think there is a big trend to make your own wedding invitations, reply cards, favors, save the date cards, and wedding bulletins these days and there is so much you can do to individualize them!  Sometime I’m going to find a big chunk of empty time in my schedule to sit down and come up with lots of ideas . . . !  (Probably when my children, ages 5, 4 & 2) are ready to get married!

Thank you for stopping by to look!

  1. This is beautiful, Becky! I’ll have to show it to my friend who just bought the Wedding Sweet Set. I love the texture the embossing gives to the card. Very nice!

  2. What a beautiful card. I bet it is stunning in person, but I got the idea from the photos.
