I’ve begun my search for wedding invitations, and little did I know how overwhelming this could be. Square cards, circular cards, folded cards, layered invitations, gatefolds, petal folds, pocket folds…the choices are truly endless! After staring at my computer for two days straight, and clicking through thousands of options, I’ve narrowed my search to pocket folds and panel pockets. These styles add a touch of elegance to the standard wedding invitation, and I love that they can be personalized to match your style.
Although I am searching for invitations that are out of the ordinary, I’m not looking for something that will break the bank. This job calls for my Cricut® machine! It’s been put to good use creating my scrapbooks, but now its time to expand into DIY wedding invitations. Personalized sets of these invitations are often expensive, so I plan to order basic white pockets, and jazz them up myself.
All it takes is a die cut bellyband, or a monogrammed embellishment and that simple white pocket goes from blah to bold!
You can also create your own ornate gatefold invitations. All you need is a piece of scrapbook paper and the Paper Lace Cricut® cartridge, and you get the look of expensive laser cut invitations.
Don’t forget the thank yous! Add flare to your cards by embellishing them with unique Cricut® cutouts.
