Styling Paper Sushi's Laurel Wedding Invitation Suite

Posted by Emily on

The best thing about Paper Sushi wedding suites is that they are completely customizable! One bride's Laurel Invitation Wedding Suite can be completely different from another bride's! Take our Laurel Suite, choose paper and ink colors that coordinate with your wedding theme, add some twine and tags, and you've got a lovely custom suite that is all your own! In this blog post, we show you one way to style our most popular Wedding Suite Stamps.

Since we feel our Laurel Suite gives off a soft, natural and subtly rustic vibe, we've chosen light, delicate, botanical paper and ink colors. Emily stamped our Laurel Wedding Invitation with some Silver Encore ink onto some lovely A7 sized blush pink paper. We also stamped our RSVPs with ColorBox's Plum Berry Ink onto A2 white paper. We tend to put RSVPs on lighter colored paper, so it's easy for guests to fill out!  Lastly, we chose kraft paper for the Invitation and RSVP envelopes, with ColorBox's Frost White ink

After inking our large 5"x7" invitation, RSVP, and two envelopes, we decided the colors needed to pop! Embossing is the perfect way to make your ink look bolder and shinier! For a reminder of how to ink larger stamps, check this out!

 

We sprinkled on our clear ColorBox embossing powder, blew off the excess, and heat set it with our easy-to-use heat tool. Feel free to refresh your memory with how to emboss, here!

Since the stamping was complete, we decided to polish the look by adding an invitation liner! We cut a template down from our A7 envelopes and used that as a guide.  Jen hand drew a laurel patterned sheet to coordinate with the suite.  We'll have that available for sale in the shop soon!  In the meantime, please feel free to request the patterned paper when purchasing your Laurel Suite!

We've found that it's a good idea to address each envelope prior to stuffingwith liners and invitations! This will help prevent you from doing extra work if you make a mistake addressing. Stuffing envelopes with liners is incredibly easy, and really elevates your invitation. We spread a bit of glue from a glue stick under the v flap liner, took our liner, slid it into the envelope, and lined up the top v flap of the liner just underneath the gum on the v flap envelope. We recommend setting a book on top of your liners to ensure that they stick with a bit of pressure!

The rest is just assembly! We set our RSVP card into it's envelope and placed it on top of the invitation. Grabbed our Laurel Monogram Stamped tag, and tied it up with twine. We also think a blush or soft green belly band would look lovely with the stamped monogram. 

Once finished, we slipped the invitation into the envelope and sealed it with a bit of silver washi tape.

Lastly, we glued on some vintage postage stamps before dropping off at the post office!

We hope we've inspired you to have some fun with your Paper Sushi wedding invitation stamps! DIY wedding invitations have endless possibilities!
