I created this shower invitation for a lovely couple
who will be tying the knot in Napa this fall.
It’s a creative DIY that you can do at home and I’m going to show you how!
First, I created the label with a photo of the happy couple framed in white and gold,
With my Dom Loves Mary Font, I added the words “Grant Vineyards” using the groom’s last name.
The label was also used as decor on wine bottles at the actual shower.
Next I inserted free clip art of the perfect wine bottle,
and added all of the shower information in white against the black bottle background.
The invites were then printed on 120# gloss cover and cut to 3 3/8″ x 8 5/8″.
( Gloss works better when your printing photos.)
I then backed them in the rich “Mars” color Stardream shimmer card stock from Clampitt Paper which was cut to 4″ x 9 1/4″.
The tags are 3″ x 1- 1/2″ with the front saying “Please join us for a couples shower honoring
Sarah & Tommy” in my Dom Loves Mary Stylistic Font. On the back is a list of the shower hostesses.
I printed a large number on one sheet then cut them and used a corner punch to round the corners.
I put a small hole punch in the corner and tied a 1/4 inch gold metallic ribbon to the tag.
I then punched two more holes through the wine bottle just at the bottom
of the red foil of the bottle. The gold ribbon was threaded through each
hole and secured on the back with artist tape. Double stick tape was used
around the edges of the white card which was then secured to the red paper.
The gold shimmer #10 envelopes, also from Clampitt Paper, were hand-lettered using my Dom Loves Mary font style.
Each was sealed with a perfectly matched red heart stamp.
I’m happy to say, thanks to a great team of ladies, the shower was a huge success!
Pics will be shared in another post.
