you will need

  •  Ivory card and envelopes – mine are from wedding craft cabin via Amazon) you can buy A4 sheets of card and cut and fold yourself, but the price is comparable to buy them prepared.

you will need

Step 1) Pre-design your invite on your PC. I find MS Publisher good for layouts and pre-sized publications, though if Photoshop/MS Word is more your thing then use whatever you are comfortable with.

Step 2) Print these out and cut to size. I used scalloped scissors for extra pretty!
