Wisteria Wedding Invite

Pre-planning is essential to ensuring a beautiful wedding day.
One of my supervisor's daughters will be married next November. The Mother & Daughter team plan to make the invitations. With a little help from me :)

This is one wedding invitation design that I found. The You are so Loved (123777 Holiday Mini) stamp set was just crying out to be inked-up .This card gave me the perfect opportunity.

This pocket card was created with one sheet of 8 1/2"x11" cardstock in Wisteria Wonder. The belly band slides off, to reveal the formal wedding invitation on the inside. The little pocket at the bottom can hold the RSVP postcard, and either Accomodation Information or directions to the reception.


1.Cut 8 1/2"x 11" Cardstock in half at 5 1/2"

2.Set one piece aside for now. This will be the formal announcement.
3. Score second piece of wisteria cardstock at 1/2" along the 5 1/2" side. Rotate cardstock and score at 2 1/2".  Trim ends of 1/2" scored side.
4. Place sticky strip along the 1/2" fold, and to sides of pocket.
5. 1/2" score piece will be adhered to the bottom of the formal invitation.
6. Before Closing pocket. I added a 1/2"x 5 1/2" strip of Basic Grey cardstock to add a little color to the inside. Fold pocket upward.
7. Print announcement on Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 8". Mount on to Basic Grey Cardstock 5 1/4" x 8 1/4". Adhere to announcement  area.
8. Create RSVP postcard. 3.5" x 5" Place into pocket.
9. Use Belly Band to close Invitation. Decorate to pleasure :)
