I always think it’s such a pity that so much time and money is put into designing and printing wedding invitations, and then they just end up in the garbage. Recently, I found a way to reuse those lovely invites and make a wedding card that is simple, special, and perfectly personalized!
TIP: Before you do any cutting, make sure you have all the pertinent information written down somewhere else. You don’t want to make the card and then not be able to find the wedding!
Find a pretty or important element of the wedding invite. It could be the couple’s monogram or a specific graphic. On this particular invite, the couple had added a lovely sentiment on the back of the invite. I cut that section out using my adjustable circle cutter. You could also use a decorative paper punch or scissors, if you have a steady hand.
I backed the section of card with some cardstock in a color that matched their wedding colors. I added it along with some textured cardstock and washi tape to the blank card. As far as card making goes, this is about as easy as it gets!
The final result is modern and simple, but completely personalized to the couple and the wedding! I think this is an idea I will be using again for future weddings!
