I got my invitation set up from Michaels this weekend (40% off!!) and am going to start putting together the wording, etc.
So I was starting to get overwhelmed with trying to design my own layout of the invitation, because the paper it comes with has little flourishes on the top and bottom like this:
And I feel like if I incorporate it, then it would look nice with just words.
OR, should I download this beauty, and just incorporate the flourish??

I think it will look nice just as it is, we’re doing Michaels invites too and if you don’t watch out, it adds up anyway! We have a custom stamp we’re doing on the envelopes, ink, ribbon, etc. I think you should keep it simple so you don’t continue to overwhelm yourself 🙂

I agree with @arenyth. Keep it simple indeed because like I learnt with my DIY store creations, the extra flourishes do add up!!!

Okay thanks! I mean, I really LOVE the flourishes it came with…but I didn’t want them to seem too simple. My Save-The-Date Cards have a little bit of purple..maybe I’ll do our names in purple or something.
Thanks girls 🙂

@napabridekelsey: I am going to be printing in our colors (purple as well) I think it will look nice! Good luck, post it when you’re done!
