Lets be honest how many of us invested in their cutting machine because they wanted to make their wedding invitations? Or even so they could be super nice and make someone else’s invites? In this tutorial Rachel will demonstrate how to create some stunning wedding invitations using our Rose Lace Wedding invitations.
White paper and card stock (or your choice of wedding colours).
Rose lace wedding cutting file
Foam adhesive squares
For the insert floral circle design from Design Bundles
Font: Lovestone Script
I have included a tutorial video of how I created the card, or you can always read the written tutorial below.
Cutting out a Wedding Invite on your Silhouette
After opening the file in Silhouette Studio I like to change the fold lines to blue and cut lines to red, this is so when I go to cut I can change the settings to score the folds and cut the design. Next, Nice and easy set the cut to card settings and cut away. After you have cut the card fold score lines and make sure there are no excess parts of the lace design left, that shouldn’t be there. (Tip: an empty tissue box on your desk is great for small scraps of card, paper and vinyl).
Creating the Wedding Invite Insert
In Silhouette Studio, I traced over the centre of the card and copied it to a new document to get the size for the Insert. Once you have the square in the new document, you can do an internal offset to get a nice border around the insert when it is stuck in the invitation. Then the fun part, designing the insert. I used a floral circle design from Design Bundles. The font I used is Lovestone Script from Font Bundles. Add the print and cut borders and move the design to the cut area. Print the design and stick onto mat. Change your cut settings to paper and send to Cameo.
Assembling the Wedding Invite
Once all the pieces were cut out I stuck the paper to the card with foam pieces to add some height. I also cut a band from coloured paper and glued to make a loop to keep the card shut. You could use ribbon if you prefer.
