Secret Garden DIY Wedding Invitations

Secret Garden 004 DIY Wedding Set

It’s finally a good few days into June, so I’ve been thinking of weddings.  I thought I would showcase a simple but elegant Wedding set that fits every brides budget.  This is great little set that covers the invitation, thank you card and place card.  There is no question, the wedding invitations and paper items that go along with it will run any bride a pretty bundle.  With Stamps, ink and any word processing program you too can make amazing item for your wedding without paying an arm and a leg.

Creative Tips –

  • Stampin’ Up! colors are great for just this purpose.  The inks are vibrant and rich.  Here I chose Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum.
  • My wedding invitation is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2” and fits into an A9 envelope.Secret Garden 004 Invite Front-Back
  • I used my word software to print onto a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock.  I first created two columns.  One side had my Invitation and the other column had my reception information.  This invitation/reception card is front and back to save on the budget.
  • My Thank You card uses our Notecard and Envelopes package.  They are pre-scored for your ease and makes a quick and simple Thank You card.  The Thank You stamp is from our Lacy & Lovely stamp set, but The Thank You in our new Four You Stamp set would be perfect also.Secret Garden 004 Thank You Card
  • The Place Holder card is also quite simple.  I can get 16 per page printed at 1 1/4” x 3”.  The full size is 3” x 3 1/4” folded so that it’s 1 1/2” x 3 1/4”.Secret Garden 004 Place Holder
  • For a little variety I made the Table Number out of our Island Indigo Paper, but it is stamped with the same stamp set.  I ran 1/2 a sheet through on our Mini Milk Carton Die through the Big Shot for the base.  I filled it with rice and used a small dowel for the stick.  I printed the table number twice and matted it twice.  I adhered them together with Sticky Strip.  It’s a cute little item that does not take up much place.Secret Garden 004 Table Number

Overall, there are so many ideas out there for weddings.  This set will run you $151 before shipping and tax, and you’ll have an additional $25 to spend from the hostess benefits.  The best part about it – it makes 100 invitations, RSVP Cards/Envelopes, Thank You cards and place cards.  Now that’s not bad for something that’s elegant and full sized.  Here’s what you will need:Secret Garden 004 DIY Wedding Set
