Hi Bees, I’m just tickled pink that Bees are still using my wedding invitation designs. it’s such a privilege to be able to help crafty and budget conscience brides. I know I sure could of used the help when I was planning my own wedding! I have another free invitation and matching enclosure cards for you. I call the set Red Poppy and Diamonds, let me know what you think!
The templates can be downloaded here: http://www.downloadandprint.com/printable-wedding-invitation-templates/
What you’ll need to make this project:
- Free templates (download here)
- Microsoft Word (Mac or PC)
- 8.5 x 11 card stock
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Gold pock fold invitation (optional)
- Double sided tape (optional)
Step 1: Download the templates and open in Microsoft Word. Add your wording. The fonts used in the example are Garamond for the main text, and Splendid is the script font, both can be downloaded for free online.
Step 2: Print the templates on 8.5 x 11 cardstock. 67lb paper works best.
Step 3: Using scissors or a paper cutter, trim along the dotted lines. The finished size of the invitation is 5 x 7″ and fits an A7 envelope. Both enclosure cards should be trimmed to 3.5 x 5″ and fit a 4-bar envelope.
Step 4 (Optional): For a polished look mount the invitation to a gold pocket fold invitation and place the enclosure cards inside. Pocket folds cost approximately $1.25-2.00 each, but really give the package a high-end look. The pocket fold shown in the picture is from Marsupial Online. A less expensive option can be found at Paper and More.
Tip: The best way to adhere the invitation to the pocket is with double-sided tape. A glue stick will cause wrinkles.
