Ahhh weddings stationery. As I have mentioned before, for three years before I began blogging full-time, I was a creative director for a stationery company specializing in weddings. When Made in Paper magazine asked me to do a creative wedding invitation project, I went right back to what I know, and of course I had to design an editable invitation and response card. It took a little bit of finessing but these pieces are ready for you to open in Adobe Acrobat and add your own information. The added touch comes in the form of the vintage paper wrap, finished with a pretty ribbon and monogram tag. To begin your DIY invitations you will need to download the free fonts Aleo and Herr Von Muellerhoff. Install these onto your computer. Download the invitation PDF onto your computer and open in Adobe Acrobat. Click over the place holder text and type in your own on the invitation, response card and monogram tag. Once done you can then print these onto a card stock. I highly recommend having these printed with a laser printer. You can take them to a FedEx Office or an office supply store that offers this service. To add a little interest I included a charcoal chalkboard second page that you can print onto the back. The floral paper wrap works best when printed onto text weight paper for easy folding. Once printed just trim all pieces using a 1.5 inch circle punch and a small hole punch to trim the monogram tags. These are ready to assemble. I used A7 and A6 envelopes in Slate that I purchased from Paper Source with a silver pen for the addressing. Though this set as shown here is gratis, I am offering custom colors and text for those who would like additional personalization over in my Etsy shop.
