It’s your friendly neighborhood needy bee here. After constantly trying to fal lin love with the white envelopes that came with my Save-The-Date Cards, I decided to make my own black envelopes. Our colors are black, white, and blush, so this dovetails perfectly.
However, I have no idea how to do the faux calligraphy with such a dark color. On my envelopes, I tried printing in both white and light pink ink on my printer. I couldn’t see anything. Perhaps the paper I got for the envelopes is too thick (card stock from Joann’s).
Can anyone suggest an alternative?

wrap around labels! Blush ones would look really sharp.

Printers don’t print white ink. They just don’t print anything where there’s supposed to be white. Your best bet is to either get labels, like @rebwana said, or handwrite (or have someone handwrite) with a white pen.

@rebwana: Umm…when I say I’m a crafting novice, I mean on the very basic level. What are wraparound labels?
