DIY Wedding Invitation —Illusion of Dimension

Learn DIY Wedding Invitation

According to one of the most popular do-it-yourself wedding projects is the DIY Wedding invitation. Brides take this project on for two reasons. The first reason to save money. The second reason is to have a one-of-a-kind design that you won’t see anywhere else.

Are you considering taking on this type of project? If yes, then this DIY Wedding invitation is a good one to consider. This elegant design would work well for other occasions you are seeking a sophisticated design. The illusion of dimension is the result of combining techniques with products.


I used two techniques to create this invitation. The first technique was to apply the background color in layers. The second technique was dimensional stamping. Dimensional stamping is a two step process.  Step one, I randomly stamped the image using the first color. Step two, I call it offset stamping. (It will look similar to a shadow font.) The snowflakes stamped in the first color is your starting point. The snowflakes stamped in the second color should be 2mm off from one stamped in the first color. (It doesn’t matter which direction you choose.)


Pearl Ex Pigment Powder was use to create the background of the stamped image. I was able to create a multi-metallic background for the snowflakes that I stamped using this product. Click on the product name under the photo if you would like to learn more about this product.

Clearsnap inks were used to stamp the snowflakes. Click on the name below the photo to go their website.
The step-by-step instructions for this project can be found in the April 2011 issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts.
