Default Melted Pearls or the Poppin' Pearls on thin paper

I'm currently designing our wedding invitation cards which consist of a creamy cardstock, with a cherry blossom yuzen sash around. Something like this in front, but without the golden border:


Inside the card, I'll have a folded white/creamy paper on which I'll be printing out the invitation wording. I'll also add a cherry blossom motif that I'd like to emboss. I'd like the flowers to have a slight shimmery look, so I thought I could try the Pearl Ex techniques. Which one would be best: the Melted Pearls or the Poppin' Pearls?

If it's the melted pearls, what type of 'thin' paper would handle the heat embossing, and yet be easily folded inside a carstock?

If it's the poppin' pearls, could I still spray onto the thin paper without curling/damaging it too much?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated! TIA!

hmmm I haven't done melted pearls but I personally would go with popping pearls because I think it would be a little easier to do in mass quantities. I've sprayed paper to set stuff that is fairly thin and if you are careful and do the start of the spray kind off the paper and hold it far enough back you just get a very thin coating. hth
