Tie them together with a purple ribbon maybe? Or get a stamp and do purple embossing on the envelope?

What about purple or gold ribbons (or both?) tied on your invitations, something like this:

Maybe with ribbon like this?

I would find a flower that’s closest to the colour you are looking for in a craft store (for scrapbooking) and place it in one of the top corners of the invite.

The invites are beautiful btw

I like the rhinestone idea. As well as doing a purple wax stamp.

I’m not sure rhinestones would look good with that invite.  I vote for the gold +/- purple ribbon(s), I think that would look great!

@creeative1:  

@pengoala:  

I love that Ribbon idea, but no bow! I think the Bow would actually detract from the simply elegance of your invites. 

 

Another option could be layering the invites on purple cardstock so you get depth and add purple — would also be easy to see in the store how it looks by holding the invite up to the cardstock you want

 

Or you could add purple ink to the “scales” on the invite. maybe use rubbing ink or powder and give that scaled border a purple sheen?

@Elky:  Ooh, I like the background cardstock idea more than my ribbon idea! Nice going!

@pengoala:  Thanks my invites are all layers so it was an easy thought for me 😛 The ribbon could even be layerd with it! (cut the ribbon to wrap the corners like your photo and then stick the card stock on so it hides the ugly-no-joins in the back)

These invites are so beautiful!  I agree with PP on layering with cardstock.  That way you can keep the beauty of your invites, while adding that splash of color you’re wanting and not covering up any of the details.

Do you have an inner envelope?  If not, I used a coloured sheet of paper and integrated the base colour into that.  So for you, you could use a dark purple and use a brown stamp or brown ribbon to hold it all together.  I will post pictures of what I’m talking about if I can!

@luvmesumhim:  I think the purple wax would be the best way to do this.

The rhinestones and fake flowers would definately bring down the classiness of this romantic and gorgeous invite. It is so luxe I would be terrified to ruin it with anything else!

My first opinion is that you don’t need anything to bring in your third color…because…why? But if you *have* to then I would look at wax options. You could probabaly even do it the center on top – where the bumpy part is.
