I think it looks pretty good! and would leave the navy border as is.

Once you master that border cutter thing, I think they will look great!  I like the borders as is.

Looks good so far.  I would print the info on white linen cardstock as it would look better on a heavier paper.  Also, when you glue the two parts together, the glue won’t seep through.

I love the blue border, maybe change some of the fonts and include the blue in some way? there are free templates on 


This way you can have a monogram of some kind and you can choose colours that is what I used on my DIY invitation packages 


and I agree if you use a heavier cardstock then you won’t be able to see the glue behind it. Good luck and you have the right idea in making them unique

Plus you could use some more traditional wording… or something like this.. just google invitation wording.. plenty of things come up

@nativedesires:  I agree with the wording part.  It looks more like an announcement than an invitation.  Definitely try a heavier cardstock and perhaps some double sided tape instead of glue.

Agreed about the wording- you need the word “invite” in there or it just looks like an annoucement.  Search for ‘wedding invitation wording’ and you’ll find tons of variations.

Other things:

– 4:30 should be written out as “Half past four o’clock”

– No “afternoon,” its assumed with a time like that (no one gets married at 4:30am)

– Maybe make your names a dark blue color to incorporate the background

– Maybe cut out the patterned blue in the same shape as the white paper, just a larger size

– Practice with the border cutter (obvious)

Good first try.  You’ll be happy you made the invites yourself!
