Rustic Wedding Invite

Hi Crafters and Friends. Im back again today with a 'Rustic Wedding' Invitation, made using Sara's wonderful Signature Collection. As I have said so many times before, it really has been an inspirational collection to work on and design with. I have a full tutorial on my blog for you today.

You will need:
A3 Ivory Centura Pearl Card (cut to a 6'' width)
Ivory Centura Pearl
Kraft Card
Matching Organza Ribbon
Ribbon Slider Die

Step 1: Place the J'Adore die at the end of your card, make sure to cut into the pearl side of your card, Take your time positioning this and use low tack tape to secure. (See Photo) Then score from the  edge of the die cut at 1/4'', 6 1/4'' and 6 1/2'', then measure 6'' from the last score line and cut. This is the safest way, rather than give a measurement as score boards and tool thickness do vary.

Step 2: Cut the 'Just Married' die from Kraft card and snip out the second tree. At the base while cutting out,, add some grass rather than a straight cut.

Step 3: Cut a frame to fit using basic square dies, using Ivory Centura Pearl.

Step 4: Cut another square of Ivory Centura Pearl, the same size as the frame. Place under the Just Married Die to give you the area you can add and text and print on. Layer this onto Kraft card, leaving a narrow border.

Step 5: Layer these together and add your frame last, use Collall Tacky glue or similar. Secure to your inside centre panel using the same adhesive.

Step 6: On the back of your project, add a ribbon slider and thread through a length of matching organza ribbon, leave enough length to tie a nice bow.

Step 7: Take a piece of Kraft card 5 3/4'' x 5 3/4'', add some glue or strong tape across the bottom (as shown) and wrap with jute twine.

Step 8: Cut the 'Love' die from Ivory Centura Pearl and secure to your piece. Then add a wooden heart, threaded with the twine.

Step 9: Lastly secure this to the front of your card base. Close the card and tie a nice bow to close the invitation.
