Today I’m excited to reveal the elegant country bridal shower invitations I made for my friend’s bridal shower! I hope you like them!
Update: Since I posted this, I’ve gotten a few requests to design these for others. So, I’ve put a printable design of this invite in my Etsy shop that I can personalize for you and you can print on your own. Find it here.
We got the idea from Pinterest, of course. Here is the original:
- Kraft paper cardstock (I got these at Michaels)
- Kraft paper envelopes (I found mine at Archivers)
- White lace doilies (Found at Joann’s or Michael’s)
- Thin ribbon
I created the design in InDesign and had them all printed out at FedEx on Kraft paper cardstock I bought at Michael’s. I printed them 2 up on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, so it only cost me around $4 to print 80 5×7 invites! Then I had to trim all of them out. The perfectionist, former graphic designer in me decided I had to cut them each out with an exacto knife (not the most effective use of time, but oh well).
Once they were all trimmed out I attached them to a doily. I used scrapbook adhesive dot glue and put a couple strips on the solid part of the doily. (I don’t recommend using a regular glue stick because then your doily is sticky to the touch.) Then I centered the invite over top of the doily with the most overhang on the left and right sides. I folded over the sides and then trimmed off the extra doily on the top and bottom. If you don’t trim it, they will not fit in the envelopes.
Next, I tied a thin pink ribbon around the whole thing and tied a bow. This part is the hardest! I didn’t attached the ribbon to the card since it was such a tiny ribbon. I also tried twine instead of ribbon, but it did not look good.
I also bought matching kraft paper envelopes at Archivers and put a cute stamp on the front to write in the addresses.
What do you think?
