Ocean Themed

Today's sample creation is a ocean color pallet wedding invitation. 

Here we used our Glitter Card Stock in Prussian Blue(GCS019). We contrasted with a beige sandy color card stock.  We added a mesh white flower with a pearl embellishment to the main invitation and pearls to the rest of the cards. 
For the belly band we used the same color sandy card stock and used our Bakers Twine in Light Sea Green (BT004). We also did a envelope slip with a teal ribbon around to finish the look.

All this was glued using our Glue Tape in Permanent(GT001).
