Yay!!! Valentines Day is coming!!! I’m never truly ready but I’m trying to get a little festive.
Flowers and gifts are getting me in the spirit.
Then I decorated a little…let’s be honest this isn’t really my husband’s thing.
But he loved the note I left on his pillow. Check out my other blog post with 20 creative Valentines Day idea for creative people.
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.
This is the final product!!! I hope this can help and inspire someone!!!
