Ever since I became a graphic designer, people have commented how I will be able to design my own wedding invitation one day when I get married. As tempting as it was to buy an already designed invitation set from Paper Source or Etsy – I couldn’t resist making my own.
All of the paper materials I used came from Paper Source, I was so thrilled with the quality! Here is what I used:
The cards all came with a square edge, which was fine, however I started playing around with a paper trimmer and decided I liked how the rounded corners looked!
I knew that I wanted some unique stamps for our wedding invitations, but I was having a hard time finding anything I liked from USPS. I searched on Etsy and found a shop run by Laurie called Flowers by LJP. I was able to find these beautiful vintage stamps that were perfect for our wedding! Laurie was so incredibly nice and helpful – she even put together collections of stamps for me to choose from. It was my favorite part of the project!
The ribbon that wraps around the invite was purchased at Michaels and I secured it with a glue stick.
On the back I decided to use a self-inking stamp from Foryoo in a cute design, they were able to send me a proof almost instantly and I received the stamp very quickly!
