New Wedding Invitation

I was recently contacted by a newly engaged gal and her mother looking for wedding invitations. 

Her colors are deep purple, like an eggplant color and silver.  She likes the baroque design and pocketfold style invitation.

So I immediately thought of the Stampin' Up! set Baroque Motifs for the design on the invitation.   

I made a few samples for her.  The first is a Metallic white pocketfold invitation.  The finished invitation folded up measures 6 1/4" x 6 1/4".  

The invitation is printed on white shimmer paper and layered on Elegant Eggplant cardstock.  There is a pocket on the right side with room for a reception card, response card with return envelope and direction card or hotel instructions.  The seal on the front is made with white shimmer paper layered on Elegant Eggplant cardstock.

I stamped the Baroque motif using versamark and elegant eggplant ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

The second sample is made with a Metallic "Ruby" colored pocketfold invitation.  The seal is white shimmer paper layered onto Silver cardstock.  It is very difficult to tell the color, but the Ruby is a little darker than the Eggplant.

I enhanced the outside of the invitation by stamping the baroque design with versamark and embossing it with clear embossing powder.  This creates a raised watermark type of image.

The inside of this invitation has the same pockets to hold all the relevant information.  I printed the invitation on Shimmer white cardstock and layered it on silver mettalic cardstock.

Which one do you like better?

Thank you for checking out my invitations!
