Attach it with craft glue and force out any air bubbles to make sure it does not get lumpy. Remember to clear any extra glue left. Then, let it dry for a while. After the wedding invitation is glued, and the glue has dried completely, just paint it with polyurethane; paint on multiple layers, for optimum results.
