Hi all, if you have been following me for a while you know my son is getting married soon.  He and his fiance live in Henderson, NV and will be getting married May 2nd. I was lucky enough to be able to create the wedding invitations.  Since I didn’t live nearby the bride and groom, I had to create several options and mail them down to them to look over and call me with adjustments and changes to make.  Here are three of the options I sent them.

wedding-invite-1The bride told me that the colors were red, black and white.  We decided that the red would be Cherry Cobbler.  I typed the text on the computer (two to a page) and printed it onto the Whisper White card stock.  I then cut each one down to 5″ x 8″.  She also wanted to include black lace somehow.  So, I purchased this lace at the local fabric store and wrapped it around the Whisper White layer before adhering it to the Cherry Cobbler layer (5.25″ x 8.25″) and then adhered that to the Basic Black layer (5.5″ x 8.5″).  A few rhinestones at the bottom add a little bling.

wedding-invite-2bFor this version I started with a 5.5″ x 8.5″ layer of Cherry Cobbler, next is a 5 3/8″ x 8 3/8 layer of Basic Grey, then a 5.25″ x 8.25″ layer of Basic Black.  Next is the Whisper White layer with the printer wording on it, that was trimmed down to 4.75″ x 7.75″.  I wrapped black ribbon around each corner and adhered it to the back of the Whisper White layer with glue dots before adhering it to the Basic Black layer.  I then added two Cherry Cobbler hearts punched out with the heart from the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack to each corner.

wedding-invite-4This design and wording from the top invitation were the winners.  This design starts with a 8.5″ x 5.5″ layer of Basic Black card stock, then a 8.25″ x 5.25″ layer of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, then a 8″ x 5″ layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock. On the 4.75 x 7.75″ layer of Whisper White with the wording, I wrapped the black lace around each corner, adhered to the back with glue dots and then adhered to the card.  I topped the lace on each corner with two rose ribbons.  I found these at the craft store, they already had adhesive on the back, it was a simple peel and stick – easy way to add a classic touch.

I found envelopes to fit these at the big box store.  I hope these ideas give you some inspiration and let you know that, you too, can make wedding invitations.
