Asian Cherry Blossom Invitations
Cherry Blossom Wedding Invitations
I designed my invitations with some elaborate and intricate details because I have a tiny wedding and I am only sending 15 invites. I have months to complete them.
I began with a self mailer to save money on the envelope. I chose a metallic bronze paper from LCI Paper Co.. I started each cherry blossom invitation with a full 12x12 sheet of paper. I used a 6" circle template on all 4 sides and cut half of the circle out. I fold each petal or half circle down with a bone folder for heavy creases to form a 6" box in the middle. The petals overlap in the center and open like a flower. Since my theme is cherry blossoms, I thought this was appropriate. I will place an envelope seal where they come together to keep the envelope closed.
On the inside, there is a cherry blossom printed vellum paper (that I found at paper source) overlay with rounded corners (used a creative memories punch). It is held down with ribbon from Michael's and a Joann pink flower 3-d sticker. Once you open the ribbon and take out the vellum, there is a separate RSVP card. For interest of being green, we did not provide a sealed envelope and requested that our few guests RSVP on line through our wedding web page at wedding wire.
The invitation itself is matted on pink metallic paper also available through LCI. The pink paper is punched in the corners with a decorative Martha Stewart punch. Then a cream piece of plain cardstock is mounted on top with rounded corners. I printed the writing onto the cream paper before I cut it out so
that I could fit 2 per page.
It is embellished with a cherry blossom stamp from Micheal's that is dipped in brown versa ink. Then filled in with a brown and pink plume pen. To make it even more special, I put pink dots and raised branches with scribbles 3-d paint accents.
