@Nickig_4:  Are you trying to recreate it exactly, or just something similar? What programs do you have?

Here is the vector for the chandelier: http://vector4free.com/vector/chandelier/ it is the top middle one. 

Here are some free downloadables with the same chandelier, you just type in your names, info, etc after you download:

I created my invitations using GIMP, it’s a free software that works similar to Photoshop.  I believe there are also tutorials on how to use it as well.  Just try googling GIMP and see what you can find.  Good luck!

@Nickig_4:  I actually just did all of mine on Microsoft Word. I played with different sizes and whatnot, and that worked out well.

@Nickig_4:  I also got my cards from cardpockets.com i didnt order them yet i just ordered the demo kit, i measured and figured out what sizes i need for  4inserts for the 5×7 signature pocket. I used Powerpoint, i tried working in word but you cant freely move things around like you can in Powerpont. Ive never used Powerpoint before this and it was really easy. 

What size card pocket did you get?

Power point was really easy to insert images and move fonts around and you can spin them and have them on angles (if for some reason you needed to rotate fonts…

@Nickig_4:  if your using word i would “insert image” then doubble click on it and to the right it would say “crop” resize” and other things like that, chick on the one that says “bring to background” that way your font will be over top of the image

@Nickig_4:  I’m not sure if you have experience with these programs but you can get a free trial (i think for a month) of adobe InDesign, illustrator, photoshop, etc.

I learned how to use these programs in school (BS in ARCH) so i don’t know how difficult they would be for someone who isn’t familiar, but it wouldn’t hurt to check them out. There are also plenty of tutorials.

@Nickig_4:  in powerpoint there is a tab you can open to change the paper size i used that and it prints exactly the size i need —open power point click on “design” then click “page set up” and you can change the page size to anything you need

 

– i ordered the 5×7 pocket fold so my invite is 6.5×4.5 all my inserts are 3.5wide and are 4″,5″,6″ and 6.78″ tall and they all fit perfectly! 

 

If you deside to use powerpoint and need any help send me a message ill help ya!
