Disclaimer: I am so not a graphic designer by any means. 🙂
So my mom and I are throwing my sister a bridal shower, and I designed these invites in Publisher. Her bridal shower is a tea party, and her colors are various shades of purple. We’re going to print these out on 4 X 6 photo cards and mail them in white envelopes.
Any suggestions on things to improve? Or which one is your favorite? I have limited skills, but I would like them to look nice…

The font and style of the last one is the best. Make sure you move the swirly layer over so it’s not in the border though.
If it were me I’d darken the border by maybe a shade. And I’d make the date and time at the top larger.

@kala_way: Thanks! By “move the swirly layer over” do you mean the part that says “Bride’s Name”? When I put in my sister’s real name, it fits better in there so it’s not over the border, but obviously it looks a little different with different letters. I think the ideas to darken the outside border and up the font size at the top are great ideas!

@Mrs. Spring: I’m not sure how it’s all arranged in whatever program you’re using, but yea the little white bits that are hanging over into the left side border.

My MOH’s shower is tomorrow (I’m her matron of honor), and I fell in love with these and so decided to do a tea theme. They’re from Papeterie, and were $1.35 each: http://www.papeteriestore.com/
And you can get them in other colors, as well. I love the one’s you’ve done, too. I like the first one the best, I think. (I wanted to share mine in case you want to save yourself the hassle of printing – I have a love hate relationship with my printer.)
