My fiance and I are going for a rustic/nature wedding and would like to incoporate that into the invitation…inspired by Mrs. Irish P’s wood veneer invitations, I made these:
These were printed on wood veneer ordered from Ebay (following Mrs. Irish P’s instructions) and printed on a color laser printer. Unlike Mrs. Irish P’s printer that prints straight through, my printer does have a roller and pulls the paper from the bottom, prints while rolling it through, and spits it back out from the top of the printer. However, it did work…a few tries were necessary though.
The invitations were printed smaller (around 4×6, while the wood was 5×8) and trimmed with normal scissors. I cut the corners with one of those corner scissors that you can find from craft stores.
Image of the dandalion was found online, and I bought a cheap wood burning pen and burned over the image (unlike the stamp version from Mrs. Irish P…I don’t do crafts and don’t have stamps so it was much more expensive for me a purchase stamps and stamppad. etc). took probably 5 mins per invite to burn the image.
Finally, we bought burlap to make into table runners, and bought extra to incorporate burlap throughout the stationaries.
The last picture is the program (printed on vellum paper) with burlap and ribbon wrapped around. much like the added details on the invites. And our colors are purple & yellow, hence the color on the ribbons.
What do you guys think?
By the way, also. we would love your comment on whether we should do the vertical or horizontal invite? (Hence the subject title). the Mr. likes the horizontal version but I feel that the vertical version might be easier to fit because we could fit a bigger font.
Look forward to your feedbacks 😀 Thanks!!!
