Even though I plan to force my family and friends to help (I'm going to tempt them round to the house with rosé wine and cookie dough ice cream, then ambush them!) I still want the invitations to be quite simple to avoid any extra stress.
My idea is to buy some ready cut and folded, white gatefold cards from ebay then embelish them at home.
The original invitation that ours will be based on was this:
But we will have purple ribbon and we're going to change the hearts to flowers. I've found a long handled flower stamp which should do the job nicely:
Nice and simple!
And then we will just print the inserts on our home computer and stick them in. I've been playing about for a while with the deisgn of the inserts, and I've got 4 that I like.
I've chosen the fonts though. The purple one for our names is "Jellyka Love and Passion" and the other text is "Antipasto". Option 4 uses "Fineliner script" but I think I prefer antipasto as it looks cleaner. All fotns are from dafont.com.
