Adding a bit of glitter and sparkly embellishments can add a bit of bling to a somewhat ordinary wedding invitation without going overboard.
When using glitter cardstock, it is important to use it as an accessory and not as the main attraction of the invitation. You can achieve this by using the glitter cardstock as a backing card of your main wedding invitation or as a belly band around a wedding invitation stack.
Note that glitter cardstock can be challenging to find in South Africa as most are imported from America so costs can go quite high. Don’t try to make your own by following various craft instructions as this becomes very messy not only for yourself but also for the guest receiving your invitation as the glitter rubs off. Try also finding glitter wrapping paper as this is much more cost effective.
Sparkly embellishments can be R20 per embellishment depending where you purchase. Look at locating them at wholesale places like Superfloral or make your own using rhinestones. If you plan way in advance, try looking at www.ebay.co.uk or www.aliexpress.com
