Chocolate Brown & Baby Pink Wedding Invitations

As promised! Here are the Wedding Invitations I have spent the majority of the last 2 weeks making with the most activity taking part over the weekend!

The chocolate brown double sided pearlescent card is really luscious but hard work when trying to mark out the folding and scoring lines as its difficult to see the pencil marks in artificial light! The baby pink background roses vellum has been layered onto white paper otherwise the pattern got very lost! I bought the vellum from a2bcrafts who were so helpful and very quick in sending the order out - so thank you Anne and Linda!

And the heart buckles / sliders I bought from ebay. The ribbon, which I just had to buy a full spool of (I think 93 meters!!) is from Ribbon Oasis.

I printed all the wording myself as the Bride and Groom wanted the guest names including rather than handwriting them.

So, 42 of these made - just have to make the 50ish Evening Invitations now, which are much less complicated - will show those at a later date!
And you do need to feel sorry for me as I have been industrially injured in the process of making the above Invitations - my thumb nail is agony from peeling back all the double sided tape that I used!


  1. beautiful Tip, they will be delighted with them

  2. Really gorgeous! I remember making wedding invitations, order of service and thank you's for a friend's wedding a few years ago and vowed I would never do it again! It's SO repetitive. Well done for finishing them, and for such a good job!
