My youngest sister got engaged a few weeks back and the engagement party is quickly approaching! I designed 4 different engagement party invitations for my mom to use for the celebration. All four cards feature my sister’s magenta (Rose Red) and orange (Pumpkin Pie) color scheme.
I wanted to make a trendy and hip invite for the party that reflected my sister and fiance’s personality. All 4 cards are flat, standard A2. I choose this size so we wouldn’t have to worry about extra postage or an odd shaped envelope. I also didn’t want anything that was too 3 dimensional out of mailing concerns. Finally I wanted something pretty that I could easily duplicate. Using a variety of Big Shot dies and embossing folders makes these cards easy to reproduce.
All of these engagement party invitation samples could be used for any party invitation including birthdays, anniversaries, sweet 16, and bridal showers.
So here’s what I came up with!
For the first sample I created a simple invitation using both of their monograms. The invitation wording would be printed on the Whisper White card stock block.
For the remaining samples the invitation wording would be printed on the back of the card.
The next sample is a sweet, cute invitation. I love the flower cluster in the lower right hand corner, don't you?!
The last 2 samples are bolder in their color scheme because I added a little bit of Basic Black. The black really kicks up the dramatic factor a few notches and gives the invitations a hipper look I think.
My mom and sister have not decided which one they want to use for the party. They better decide quick so I can get a move on making them. They want to mail them out next week!
