Card "Style" #1
This card, i used "Gatefold" style card, with a 4" Doily and the natural color Twine with Kraft color cardstock with Turquoise cardstock as the insert (as her wedding color is turquoise) and I used the "Wood Grain" Emboss folder to emboss the two front "panel Folds" to add a bit more a "country feel".
To make the "Gatefold" style card you need to take your 8.5" x 5.5" cardtock and place on your "scoreboard" Lenght wise of 8.5" going across. Score at 2 1/8"
Then Score a second time at 6 1/8"
Then Fold at your Score lines and the 2 panels should meet each other in the middle on the front of the card.
Take the 4" Doily and very carefully cut it in half. Each Side should be 2"
Once you have your Doily cut in half. Take Each half and place the "rounded Scallop" edge on each panel with the straight edge hanging over the folds of the card. Carefully fold the "hanging" part of the Doily around to the back of the card. I then adhered that part to the back of the card. You can see in the Picture of the back of the card above.
For the inside of the card I used a turquoise color cardstock cut at 3.75" x 5", layered with same size peice of vellum. This is where you print all your wedding info. As you can also, see the "panels" embossed with the "wood grain" emboss folder.
Card "Style" #2
This card i used a 4" x 5.5" Peice of Kraft Cardstock, wrapped with a "trimmed" 8" Doily. With a "band of Burlap & Lace. The Burlap is about an 1" wide and 4.5" in lenght. The lace is about 1/2" wide and 4.5" in length. I layered the lace on top of the burlap and on the back I adhered the ends together. I had the lace overlap and fold under the top edge of the burlap just a smidgen to give it a bit of a clean edge. You can notice it in the 2nd picture, which is of the back of the card.
Card "Style" #3
This card is the same "style" as the Card #1 (Gatefold Card). I used Burlap to create the "band" around the card, which simply slips off with the turquoise color Tulle Bow. The Tulle I used is 6" wide and comes on this huge roll. I folded the Tulle in half to make it 3" wide. I'm not sure what the length is, I forgot to measure, sorry. I then just wrapped it around and tied a bow and then trimmed the "tails" to be even. The inside I used a 4" x 5" white cardstock, with "inked" edges using "Ocean" CTMH ink pad. I inked the edges to give it a lil Pop of color.
If you don't like how the back of these cards look with the doilies not covering the back you could easily cover it with either white or kraft (or what color your using) cardstock to give it a cleaner look.
Card "Style" #4
This card I did the same "style" as card #2. Using the 8" Doily with the 1" strip of burlap with the 1/2" white lace and the natural twine. I used turquoise color cardstock for the "insert" to give some Pop of color. This is my favorite one of the four, though I do like them all but this one just appeals to me the most.
When she makes her final decision on which version or mix of several cards. I will post again the Final & Formal invitation.
Until Next Time...
