I love them! It’s so different from the typical invites. I think with such over the top font, that you won’t need the stamp – it might make it all look a little too busy.

Wow! it’s gorgeous!!! I don’t think you even need a stamp.  It’s beautiful on it’s own!!

I really like the clean lines of the two fonts as-is; it’s pretty and striking without being cluttered.

Based on the intircate and detailed nature of the font you are using, I think the flower stamp would be too much. Also, the font evokes more of a fairy-tale feeling, while the flowers are more rustic/woodland/English garden in feel. I feel that both items would be a bit too busy together.

@Fanciful:  Yes, if you went with something more wispy and delicate, I could see it working with the fonts. I’d print out a couple of sample invitations and play around with different stamps and placements till you find something that speaks to you. Good luck!

@Fanciful:  I think it looks amazing! Just one thing the happy ever after needs to move down just a little. It is too close to the other text. Other than that it looks fantastic as is.

I agree with pp; i definitly wouldn’t use the big stamp. 

sure, if you have other, more delicate stams to work with, that might turn out nice. 

just do a trial on plain paper to see what looks good and what is simply too much.

@Fanciful:  I think the stamp would really make it even better, but it’s already beautiful 🙂

@Fanciful:  Oh good. I was going to suggest a light ink and using the stamp along the edges just like the follow up you posted! I like it.

I think your invites stand alone perfectly, and I wouldn’t do the stamp.  Your invite is simpl but intricate in the wording and fancy fonts.  You don’t want it to be too busy.
