I think navy and chamopagen invitations would look great! I have never embossed either, but maybe navy wording with the image in champagen? I think it would look great! 🙂

How would you feel about a subtle color for your dogwood stamp? I think a slightly darker champagne than your paper might be pretty. You could also go with deep navy colored ink for your stamp (so dark it’s nearly black?), or even dark brown/chocolate, which would remain in the tan/brown family of your champagne paper. I’d say the last choice for me would be sage green, depending on the vibe you’re going for.

I hope that helps! Good luck!

Are you embossing the image on the champagne cardstock or the white?  If you are doing it on the champagne, I think using a watermark inkpad and embossing wtih clear powder would look really pretty.  It would give you a darker champagne color like  drift mentioned.

Here’s an example of what the watermark looks like (It’s about halfway down the post in a gold/champagne color): http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/03/27/not-thanks-enough/

I suggest using a color ink and clear embossing powder. Also, make sure the ink is pigment ink. It doesn’t dry as fast so you have a little buffer of putting the powder on it. The clear powder makes it a little crisper.
