In my almost daily wedding journey I’ve ben lamenting over all of the events I have-yes have-to plan and all of the expensive invites we will be buying. I mean this is engagement party 2, there are bridal showers and teas to come. Well, then I figured out how to print my little invite creations on some pretty heavy stock paper in my little ol’ printer.
First I grabbed my water color paper, I choose this because I knew I’d be painting it later and I loved the texture. Then I slid it into the feeding tray, one sheet at a time, in the back of my printer instead of the normal tray. This is the key to printing on the good stuff. Next, I got my favorite flat water color brush and some pink pigment and painted the top of the invites. Some of my personal info has been removed from the cards. I love you guys but I get nervous LOL.
Next use a paper cutter to cut out the invites…make sure you cut inside the black outlines. Nobody wants to see that!
Then I cut out another rectangle slightly larger than the invite and spray glued them together. Finally, I grabbed a gold pigment marker and colored the edge.
