Beth & Will’s Wedding Invitations
I designed a full wedding set for Beth & Will, as their wedding present. Their colour scheme was picked out, and their style focusing very heavy on plants, and that breezy boho feel.
I knew I wanted to make their invitiations unique and memorable, so I proposed a 3D design, making a bed of cheeseplant leaves, layering different colours, and setting the actual invitation in the centre.
I sent this picture over to the clients and they loved it, so I began cutting out some trial bits.
The backing was made by combining the leaf bed shape with Pathfinder, and then trimming it back by a few mm to make the leaves easier to get into the right spot.
Everything cut well, attached easily, and I was ready to start the making.
We decided that reception guests would only get a single sided invite, as all the information could easily fit. However, for day guests, I developed a tri-fold version.
Each leaf type had to be cut from A4 card in the correct colour. The backings were cut from a much thicker cardstock for rigidity. In the end I think this project was probably about 120-200 cuts. I went through a lot of Cricut mats!
In the end we made about 90 of these, if memory serves. I had Beth (the bride) and my Luke (my fiance) helping me glue all the leaves down, and importantly, in the correct layer order!
I sourced some kraft envelopes for the client – I had been smart at the beginning and designed the invites to fit in a common envelope size. She sent them out, and the guests loved them.
They fit brilliantly with the rest of the wedding stationary, which you can also find on here!
