I just wanted to share a couple pics of these new gorgeous embossed pocket fold invitations we created as part of our retail collection carried (so far) exclusively by Calla Graphics in New Jersey.
This is a Cream Puff matte cardstock pocket fold with a custom flourish "embossing" process that we did using a special resin powder and a heat treatment. I put "embossing" in quotations, because it is really more like a thermographic treatment, but in the craft world, they call it embossing.
The monogram was done using the same process, and is composed of three layers, a Cream Puff text layer, an Opal metallic mat, and a Cream Puff base layer. We used velcro dots to keep the pocket fold closed so as to reduce the potential for tearing, as that is a problem with double-sided tape.
The interior invitation and the three included enclosure cards are mirror opposites of the layering on the monogram, with an Opal base layer, a Cream Puff mat layer, and an Opal text layer.
This invitation was flat printed in a grey ink, but the metallic sheen of the text layer card stock gives it a shimmery, silver-like appearance.
The three enclosures ranged in size from 6.5" in length to 5" in length to create a layered look when assembled in the pocket.
Although we did this with a clear embossing powder and a flourish pattern, the sky is the limit in terms of introducing secondary colors and alternative patterns into the design. A black pocket fold with red embossed cherry blossoms would create the most dramatic asian inspired invitation, or a light green pocket fold with with a light pink damask would be perfect for an outdoor spring soiree.
