Printing cards at home
There are numerous computer programs and websites that allow creating your own wedding invitations. Start the invitation creating process by purchasing the blank note cards and find the source of inspiration like the famous painting or your favorite cartoon. Print the image on the front cover and place the text inside. Don’t forget to add the “created with love by …” on the back for your own touch. In case you have the limited number of guests, consider adding decorative elements like the glitter or lace to the invites.
Even if you are new to scrapbooking, you can still create your invitations using the techniques applied by the scrapbookers. For instance, the key to the original design is using the distinct types of patterned papers so try to use at least two types of paper in your wedding hues, where one should be with the large print, while the second should have the smaller pattern. Embellish the front of the card with the various papers. Don’t forget to attach the ribbons along the seam and your invites are all aready.
Popular among the card makers and scrapbookers, rubber and clear stamps are available in distinct patterns, designs and words so you can easily use them in your personalized invitations. Opt either for the colored or black ink for hand-coloring.
