Make Your Own Wedding Invitation
Today I will show you how I created this Wedding Invitation using Flower Soft Multi Function Die Cuts.
Glue a sequin and seed bead to the centre of each flower and leave to dry completely. When dry attach this decorative edge to the left hand side of your card butting the end up level with your base card.
Some people like to complete one stage of each card rather like a assembly line, you get into a rhythm that way and I think it works out quicker.
Next take a piece of ribbon and wrap it round your card securing on the front about 1 3/4 from the bottom. Again use a high tack tape as ribbon takes some holding. This is where you place your sentiment i.e. Wedding Invitation, Evening Invitation, and the same procedure is used for each item of stationary, its just its location that differs.
Now you’re nearly finished your first card, all that remains to do is cut a piece of your backing paper and glue securely to the inside right of your card, leaving a very small border around the outside to show the colour of your card. Don’t forget this stationary set can be made from any of the die cut sets, however how many cards you need to complete the set may vary slightly.
When you have printed your invitation simply stick it onto the backing paper, making sure you have it central. I would do a trial card of each type initially to make sure that the size of font you use will fit into your card.
When you type your sentiments do several to one page, but remember to leave sufficient space around each sentiment to allow you to cut them up, mount them onto another piece of your backing paper, leaving a small edge around to contrast with the cream or white card and with double pads place over the edge of the ribbon at the join.
Your first card is now completed, the rest is easy! Check back tomorrow for another step by step.
