are you wondering about a certian process to DIY or the entire suite?
design the card in powerpoint, publisher, illustrator…whatever program you have and can use. it’s a very simple design, so shouldn’t be too hard. use dafont.com for free fonts.
print the invite on white cardstock, then mount on a piece of green cardstock. cut strips out of navy cardstock to use as a belly band and use a drop of glue to attach it. tie with twine.
Also, last time I checked Martha Stewart had instructions on how to line your own envelopes if you wanted to take the time to make the interior of the envelopes decorative.
Oh here. found it
Thanks. Does Martha Stewart make her own invitations?
@missmichigan: I think you’re misunderstanding what we’re saying 🙂
There is no design already set up. If you want to DIY, you have to make it yourself. Open a new document in one of those programs, set your margins, and start typing the info in the same (or similar font). If you want a fancier, free font, check out dafont.com to download. Then do as @Kitsy says, print them out onto cardstock/paper of your choice and mount/glue them onto colored cardstock.
You could always get someone to create this for you, but since it’s a simple enough design, you should be able to DIY easily following the steps above.
Check your dpi before making your invites tho! Mine was set at 72 and I had to change it to 300, and it took me awhile to figure out why it was so fuzzy looking.
the envelope looks like it has a liner glued to the inside. You would need to find the paper that the person used for the liner to duplicate that look.
The topic ‘how do I DIY these?’ is closed to new replies.
