Do you have experience in Photoshop/Illustrator?  Because those are fairly complicated designs.  I DIYed our invitations, which weren’t nearly as graphics heavy as your examples are.  Even with my basic Photoshop skills, I needed my Fiance (who is a graphic artist) to help me out quite a bit.

There are a lot of online tutorials; just google “photoshop tutorial” or whatever specifically you’re looking for.  Do you know anyone with a design background that would be willing to help?  Could you look to your local community college and take a Photoshop or Illustrator class?

Have you thought about not designing them yourself but asking an Etsy designer to do them?

Your inspiration here is beautiful!  Good luck!

Do you have Photoshop/Illustrator? Or what program would you be using?

I use stockxchg for high res pics that you can download for free.. here’s one that looks kinda like the 1st pic you. It’s free to sign up and the regular search results are free =) I serach “peacock feather”

I would then just crop it down to just the feather and manipulate/position it as you need. =)

I also use dafont for free fonts.

You could EASILY (well I figured them out) to create all of your stationary with some time =)

Why don’t you put in an alchemy request on Etsy?  You could post the pic of the image you like and see what others come up with.  It would probably be your best bet to get a tailored design if you don’t have the necessary programs or experience.  Good luck!

I think if you’re not familiar with graphics programs your best bet is going to be finding a premade border that you can drop your info into.

Here’s some stock that you could buy:
