View Full Version : Help with wedding invitation

Ok, I'm trying to figure out how to frame my wedding invitation. I have an 8x10 silver toned frame (that matches several of my other wedding frames) and the invitation. Here is a picture that gives an idea bout the appearance of the invitation:


I was thinking mount it on black bazzill, but then what? I have the August Gladiola primas, should I do something with those (wedding colors were pink and green). I thought the black cardstock would make the print on the invitation stand out nicely. Any thoughts, suggestions? I was just going to mount it on the cardstock and leave it at that, but I saw DSisIL's yesterday and it was mounted on a green and had some lovely flowers around it and just looked so nice. What should I do?

Well, I'm not sure what's wrong because it shows up for me. Here's a link to the scrapbook page on twopeas:

This place has some cool frames they do with flowers and glass - you can see through the glass matting. They may give you some ideas (I like the corners best myself but to each his or her own). http://www.the-glass-garden.net/
The ones on this site are beautiful and some of the prettiest I have seen.

I would check with your lss and be sure that whatever kind of paper you use for the background and matting won't fade - I have heard that some colors of bazzil fade over time but I don't know what colors those are. You could always get a mat board from a frame shop to mount it on. They have great colors and textures and are designed to not fade.

Don't forget to post a photo of what you end up doing - I know I want to see what you come up with - I love to see other peoples creative stuff.
