Gorgeous Grunge Meets A Groovy Love Postcard Wedding Invitation Stampin Up! UK

The card I am sharing with you today is another Wedding Invitation, but could be used for any event invitation. I have coupled 3 stamp sets:

POSTCARD (now retired)

The postcard stamp is one of my all time Favourites, so will stay with me indefinitely, along with my En Francais background stamp .... along with a good few others he he

I added an extra dimension by using the Birthday Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) Pack, and co-ordinated the ink pads, with the DSP

Mint Macaron & Basic Grey
The sentiment comes from the Hostess Stamp Set - AND MANY MORE
and I have used the Banner Punch to create the label

6. On a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, sselect 2 of the heart stamps from the Groovy Love Stamp Set, and stamp one in Basic Grey and the other in Mint Macaron; punch them out using the Sweetheart Punch
7.  stick one heart onto the stamped card front using Fast Fuse or Tombow, Pop the second heart up using Stampin Dimensionals
8.  Trim a strip of Whisper white Cardstock to 1.5 cms wide; stamp the CELEBRATE stamp from the And Many More Stamp Set, and create banner ends by inserting the stamped strip in through the top of the Banner Punch and guide it between the cutting plates, move the cardstock through until it is within a few millimeters of the sentiment, and punch. Rotate by 180 degrees and repeat with the other end; apply Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the label and mount onto your card front.; Mount onto your Card Base
9.  All that remains is for you to print your Save The Date information onto an A4 sheet of Whisper White Cardstock (yes it goes through a printer OK) and trim down to 14.4 x 10.1 cms and mount on the back of the postcard.
