Wedding Invitation Layout

Do you ever struggle to come up with a unique wedding gift idea? If so, I have a suggestion.

Hey there! Today I'm sharing my latest creation for CutCardStock. 
This is a 12 x 12 inch wedding invitation layout project. 
I was asked to put one together years ago by a co-worker and 
have done several since then as gifts. 
Just put the layout in a shadow box and the couple has a lasting keepsake. 

For this particular layout, I actually designed and printed a sample invitation myself. I found some pretty watercolor floral clip art on Etsy and used the Pages App on my Mac to design. It was printed onto Cougar A7 (5×7) Flat Discount Card Stock Invitations.

Pop Tone GUM DROP GREEN 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock

Gold & white patterned paper from my stash

Layout Base

The layout base consists of a 12 x 12 inch piece of the Gold Glitter Card Stock and a 11 1/2 x 11/1/2 inch piece of the Cougar White Card Stock.

Ink the edges of the white card and use a corner punch on the gold card. The white card is inserted into the corners of the gold.

Configure the Design

I chose to use 2 pieces of patterned paper on the background of my design. One of the these pieces is the paper I chose from my stash which was cut to 3 x 11 1/2 inches. Wanting to use another white and gold patterned piece, I created my own with washi tape (see photo below). It measures @ 5 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches.

These pieces and the invitation were matted with the Metallic Punch Card Stock. I also cut 2 strips measuring 1 x 10 1/2 inches.

Next, I did my die cutting for embellishments.

My flowers were assembled.

Add the finishing touches.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my Wedding Invititation Layout project!
