Melissa Nyssen's http://www.formal-invitations.com is an affordable online resource for premium blank wedding invitations supplies, offering the latest in distinctive papers, embellishments and styles since 1996.
In addition to their well-known line of unique wedding invitations, Formal-Invitations.com now offers premium materials to create easy and affordable holiday cards and invitations at home. Depending upon the degree of formality desired, there is an extensive range of options available.
Customers begin by choosing a rich heavyweight background card in a festive color. The card is layered with printable translucent vellum or a crisp white overlay and attached using a distinctive embellishment. Clients can choose from recommended styles or mix and match supplies to create their own unique design.
Embellishments available include peel and stick wax seals, elegant silky tassels, silvery skeleton leaves, silver snowflake and ruby red jewel brads. Sheer chiffon ribbons can be paired with their charm designs such as a snowflake, holly, Christmas tree or a wreath for Christmas cards; a Star of David for a greeting at Hanukkah; 2007 or a champagne bottle for New Year's wishes and invitations. Enclosed are a few ideas put together by Melissa:
- Metallic Silver background card with an overlay attached by a snowflake brad
- Poppy Red background card with a silky gold tassel
- Handmade Snowy White background card embedded with glistening silk fibers, adorned with a sheer chiffon ribbon and a snowflake charm
- Forest Green background card with a ruby jewel brad
For a chic modern design, the cards can also be embellished with a beautiful fabric "belly band" or unique paper sash. Holiday styles include the Forest Green background card paired with a red beaded sash and Poppy Red background cards bound with a black belted grosgrain ribbon and rectangular brass buckle.
To complete the creation and protect the envelope when hard embellishments such as charms and brads are used, crinkle liners in several metallics and silk tissue overlays are useful and attractive.
