Wedding Invitation

Here is the invitation that I made for my neighbor.  Her colors are pacific point and silver.  This my first ever wedding invitation and I was very proud of myself.  I started with 51/4 by 5 1/4 piece of pacific point cardstock.  I inked up the medallion back ground stamp with versamark and used silver embossing powder. I then took the vintage circle stamp from the new artistic etchings stamp set and embossed in the silver as well.  I then punched it out with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  The initial is from the monogram sweet stamp set and was stamped in versamark, then pacific point and clear embossed. 

Here is a clearer picture of the smaller medallion.  The initial was stamped on silver cardstock and punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch.  The card was banded with white organza ribbon.

The invitation itself was printed in pacific point ink on the computer and then embossed with silver embossing powder using the swirl stamp from baroque motifs.....I promise I won't say the word "embossing" again!!!!!!  On the left panel of the card was a pocket with the swirl in clear emboss (oops..said it again).  The reception and response cards were placed in the pocket.  I was so pleased with the results and I think the bride was too!!!!

Hi Beth:

Love your invitation too much. I have a question for you, how do you print a card stock and then use embossing powder on it? Is it a special card stock or if any can work well? Thanks for your answers.
