A Wedding Invitation!

Good evening all! I thought I'd share the wedding invitations I made for my niece with you!
Her theme is Navy & Cream
As they had previously bought some save the date cards from the internet & we decided to use those as the basic design for the design of the invitation.
After looking at lots of different card designs the 'Happy Couple' opted for a gatefold card.



The card base is made using A4 navy recycled cardstock,
I cut it in half , scored either side & folded to a gatefold.



I printed the words Wedding Invitation on to a square of cream card then matted & layered with a navy & then a cream square.
I added a little flourish or two which were cut using a punch papermania punch & a single cream rose.


I used ultra high tack DST to stick the ribbon to the back of the card.
Then wrapped it around, tying in a double knot at the front.


For the insert I printed out the details onto a piece of A6 cream cardstock, trimmed a little
 & stuck inside using photoglue! 
Simples Huh! 
Thanks for stopping by!
