Homemade Wedding Card Idea

It seems to be wedding season around here! Yesterday I went to a wedding of a couple of our former Junior High students from five years ago. It was a beautiful wedding, and we are so proud of them. I wanted to give them a card that was special from me and meaningful for them as well.

I like to fit gifts or cards to the theme or colors of people’s events. This particular wedding invitation clearly showed the colors were blue and red. I figured I would start with that color palette for my papers.

I didn’t get a good before picture, but you can kind of see the parts that I took from the invite.Wedding Cards6After finishing that card. I was feeling motivated to do another card. Next weekend there is wedding, but we will not be able to attend, so I wanted to make sure to give them something meaningful too. The other couple had a great invitation with lots of pictures for me to choose from.
