Wedding Invitation Frame

Here is a frame that is WAY past due. Yep...late again! The wedding was in October, but I still have this frame. I completed it in September (with intentions of being on time), but I need to make a card to match and throw in a gift card. But, I like sending wedding gifts late because I liked receiving them late. I think you have up to a year to give wedding gifts. Do you think that's weird that I validate my tardy wedding gifts! It's an extra surprise and you get to buy some things you didn't get on your wedding day; plus, it will be like a Christmas gift! Making frames are easy and I think when wedding invitations fit a frame like this, it's a great gift to give because it is a keepsake they would want to actually keep.

I'll make a card and share it later. Oh yeah, I smudged the last names for privacy, so if you think parts of the picture are blurred, they are!

To make this frame:
  1. Paint wood frame with acrylic paint.
  2. Stamp flowers in versamark ink, then heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  3. Add pearls to the stamped image.
  4. Tie ribbon in a bow around the frame.
  5. Add a hat pin with beads to the knot in the ribbon.

along with the others that loves this idea. I really love it too! It's gorgeous! I think that this is beautiful and nice. I have also thought about the idea of a DVD invitation. I have searched for more modern invitations, and I found Silver Screen Invites.
