I mailed or handed out all of our wedding cards and realized we were short a few cards. Instead of purchasing another DIY wedding invitation kit, I decided to look at what I had on hand and was able to come up with this last minute wedding card. I had extra blank floral cards and envelopes. You could use this as a guide to even make your own wedding cards or any invitations!
On your word document, you will need to set paper to 5" x 7" (invitation) and 3.5" x 5" (response card).
You may want to print on regular paper for trial and error before printing on your cards officially.
Total Time: 30 minutes
- blank cards
- premium cardstock
- paper cutter
- glue stick
- computer + printer
- Measure out invitation card and response card onto the cardstock. The default sizes are 5" x 7" and 3.5" x 5" or you can make your own customized size if you would like (be sure the size you make will fit your envelope.)
- Use your paper trimer to cut out your cards.
- On your computer, type out your invitation. Print out cards (here is a sample:)
- Trim card invitation to size of your blank card. (If you do not have any blank cards, you can use another cardstock paper as a border.) Since my card has curved edge, I had to trim it down a little then glue down.
- Ready to put the cards into the envelope and mail/hand cards.
