I designed and printed these myself on photoshop. It’s a folded invitation and matching RSVP card. I had a friend who is an illustrator do some sketches of landmarks in the city we’re getting married. Still deciding on whether to use the pegs to attach name tags or something else… I’ve also got a matching copper stickers to seal the navy envelopes.

wafflegirl123 :  I designed the text layout in photoshop and printed it all in black and white on cardstock at staples. Then I cut them, used a Martha Stewart hole punch for the top design and foiled the names using the heidi minc swap machine. I know you can also use a laminator but I got better results with the machine.

i designed them and had them printed, hand-drew metallic lines on them, assembled everything, and wax sealed them. this was one of the last ones i did (i had 100+ to make) so my handwriting was a bit lacking at this point, but the majority of them looked much better than this tongue-out

I heavily HEAVILY edited a flower heart that I saw somewhere online. It was purple and blue, but my colors were blush and sage. Everything else on the invite I created myself, and I thought it looked fabulous- plus I didnt have to pay for someone else to design it for me! But I am very handy with photoshop and computer ediing software.
