After soaking up lots of inspiration from blogs, shops, etc….I have finally finished designing my invitations. Here is my first mockup. I ordered all my paper (and the green enclosure card) from papersource. Now I just have to cut ALL of the sheets (because they all have images that “bleed” off the page) round the corners, and assemble them. Thankfully I only have to make about 60 (eek!)

They look great!!! Do you feel that you are saving a lot of money by doing this? I am only asking because I need to figure out what I am going to do about invites. I would like to try this, but I am not the most creative/crafty gal! =)

LOVE them….love the color combo, love the design. Great job and feel your pain about the trimming and corner rounding…but they look awesome!

I absolutely love them! We’re doing a love bird theme and have been tooling around with similar designs. I’m thinking of doing everything in black & white print, with a few hand-painted (by me) flowers/leaves on the tree and then gluing/fastening separate birds so they stand out more (or maybe just the wings…) and using those as the theme that carries through the entire suite. Your set definitely demonstrate how well that works!!!

Thanks everyone! I definitely saved a ton of money! For everything I think I paid a total of $150 maybe. That’s for all the paper, the enclosure cards, the response card envelopes, and the large envelope. I am also going to pring 1.5 inch stickers with the kissing birds to seal the enclosure card so it’s not plain on the outside.
If anyone would like to steal this exact design I’d be more than happy to change the files and email PDFs. I obviously don’t have time to design anything new or print them for you right now (I still have the programs, name cards, table numbers, thank you cards, etc to do). But I think I may try to do more designing of these and maybe open an etsy shop when I’m done with the wedding stuff. So much fun!
Anyway – like I said – if anyone wants these personalized for them I’d be happy to do it for free (just don’t steal the design and sell it as your own – k?)
Thanks for all the compliments!

That looks so great! What program did you design it in? It truely does look very professional! I too will be designing mine and will only cost me $50 to print at a printing place my boss owns up the street. I am a graphic designer so I was lucky enough to have the programs to do my invitations easily, not to mention the cheap print store up the street.

Thanks! I am in love with my invitations – I was able to get exactly what I wanted because I designed it myself 🙂
I used Adobe Illustrator.
