Please help if you have Embossed before!

Recommended Posts

OK, here are my invites. They are finally done as of last week.

 

here is the back of the outside, where the embossing was the most difficult. I wasn't able to get a close up of the mistakes that I made but basically it came down to the powder over heating, the stamp not showing up all the way to the edges and even wiping off stray black powder left streaks on some of the invites. the insides were a little bit easier.

in this one the invite is open and you can tell how light the font for the names is because you can barely read it. (another mistake). sad.gif

Insert by itself. I will say that the insert was by far the easiest to emboss :)

Ok... I know you are your worst critic, but the stamp is gorgeous and I really think you guests are going to love getting them. The detail is awesome. Remember this is just one element of a big celebration... send them off and cross it off. I love the swirls and the design of the layout!

thank you girl so much for the positive feedback! I still love the idea of them even though they didn't turn out EXACTLY as I wanted them to. :) Thank you all for the advice and encouragement that you gave. :) I'll know who to ask for help if I need to emboss more stuff!

Okay, I know nothing about embossing and when you were describing it, I thought, "awe! Poor girl!" However, I just looked at them, and WOW!! I think they look beautiful! Like I said, I know nothing about it, but I don't see any mistakes.

 

I made my own invites as well, and I felt the same as you and found all the imperfections. However, my guests are carrying them around in the purses so that they can show their friends!!

No, they are printed with a font that's called Scriptina. You can download it from here Scriptina Font | dafont.com. Da Font is nice because in the help section it tells you how to install the font on your computer so it shows up in all of your Word applications. If you have problems i can try to help you even though I don't really know what I'm doing very well. The font is very script-y so there are big spaces between some of the letters. You can that by changing the kerning, or character spacing. I had to play with that a lot using this font but there's a really helpful thread about changing the kerning on BDW. http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t31083 Hope this helps!

Im also embossing designs onto my pockefolds and the inserts of my invites :) I absolutely love it since my theme is all sand dollars and starfish. I bought most of my materials from Michaels so I could use half of coupons to save :) Anyways, I bought the special embossing ink. Used specifically for embossing and they have a range of different colors. Then I chose clear embossing powder they sell to put over the ink. My ink is brown so it comes out brown once I run the heat gun over it. BE SURE to angle the embossing gun so you can get even heat to the entire image. Don't hold to gun too close or else you will heat certain areas to quickly.

 

Hope this helps!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
