What color are you planning to paint the edge?  It’s pretty easy.  Just grab a marker and run them along the edge.  It goes by super fast.  If you actually want them to be bronze, I would pay to have them done.  Even a bronze stamp pad will not give you the effect you are looking for.

If I were being honest, the bronze foil photographs really orange.  Have you gotten any samples from your printer?

Also are you printing a reception card? 

One other tip.  If you’re going to use the doily liner, you really need to order #7 envelopes.  Otherwise it will not really fit.  I learned the hard way and had to stuff my invites in mine.

first of all i LOVEEE THE doily! I wanted to do that too!  The design/wording that you are chosing, though, seems so modern and corky compared to the vintage and elegant feel of the doily though…just my opinion.  I also think shiney bronze against the dollie may be too much texture. 

I could be so off though, It’s hard without seeing it finished!

I had mine done through Jeronimos Lithocraft in California based on a rec from weddingbee.  They sent me a bunch of notepads with bronze foil, so I know they have that available.  I’m sure it will look the same no matter where you order it from.  There aren’t that many companies supply foil for foil stamping, but I do think it will look really orange against your turquoise invitation.  You might want to consider doing it on an ivory invite with turquoise liner or ribbon.

I’m not sure they do foil edge painting, so you may want to contact them directly about that.
