Today we are sharing 3 awesome and easy techniques for embellishing “store bought” wedding invitations from Wedding Paper Divas! Although these invites are darling just as they are, why not add a little crafty touch! If you like these ideas below, then you will really like the techniques we shared last year. Hopefully this post will inspire your creativity and show you that it only takes a few little things to make something extra special!

Technique #1

For the first style, we are going to simply add little pearl stickers to the centers of each of the flowers… the ones we choose are from Martha Stewart Crafts. This will take you only seconds per card and gives a great 3D touch! Invitation: Chalkboard Floral in Orange Sherbet.

Technique #2

For the second style (we just love these!) we are going to tie a tiny little bow with 6 inches of 1/8″ ribbon. Apply a dot of Tacky Glue to adhere the bow… and it’s done! Doesn’t the darling little bow add such a cute touch! Invitation: Chevron Hanger Shower in Powder Blue.

Technique #3

For the last style, we are going to simply spray each card with a coat of Glitter Spray Paint from Krylon! Since this design already has a glittered looking & sign… the glitter spray paint is the perfect touch. It won’t ruin your cards and it dries in minutes. We love this sparkly touch! Invitation: Enchanted Embrace Save the Date in Umber

Gorgeous, really like the pearly things. Did you know where to get the Martha Stewart pearl in Singapore? or some online store that can ship here. Thank's
