Six Gorgeous Gold Wedding Invitation Ideas You Can Create Yourself!
We love all that glitters, here at Create and Craft, but we have to admit that nothing says luxury quite like a gold finish! Which is why we just love this latest crafty offering from the talented Corrine Robinson, who has put together six creative designs for gorgeous, glittering wedding invitations... all glamorous in gold! If you're looking for wedding invitation ideas for your big day, then we're confident you'll fall in love with an idea or two from these stunning designs that you can incorporate into your own creations! Check out our six beautiful wedding invitations below, and let us know which is your favourite...
First up is this intricately elegant gate fold design, created using none other than the awesome ScanNCut! This incredible die cutting machine opens such a world of possibilities when it comes to papercrafting... forget having to pay for professionally produced invitations when you can achieve identical results yourself, from the comfort of your craft room! Here, Corrine has teamed die cut metallic gold card with a crisp white invitation, layered atop gold glittered card for a sparkling finish. Held together with a classic white ribbon, this invitation exudes elegance!
A Fall Finish:
Whether you're getting married in autumn, or you just want to bring a touch of nature into your wedding theme, we think including leaves or foliage on your design is a great way to add a hint of boho to a sophisticated invitation. The above design was created using a stencil, and if you'd like to achieve the same segmented look, simply use masking tape to mask off where you'd like the stencil design to end. Corrine used Cadence wax in Inca Gold and, once dry, wrapped the front in a length of gold ribbon, before matting and layering atop glittered card and white card.
All That Glitters:
Want your invitation to sparkle in a big way? Say no more! This design is all-out glam, and we just love it! If you're addicted to sparkle, then make your glittered card the main event by using it in a big way, with a thick stripe of gold sequins to draw the eye to the centre of the card. Run a strip of super sticky tape across the join at the bottom of the glittered card to make adhering the sequins easier - and try not to make it perfect... these look ultra gorgeous if they're a little chaotic!
The Classical Card:
This subtle yet sophisticated design is great if you love clean lines and a classic look... without compromising on glitter! Go bold with your glittered card once again, but this time cover the join using a chic white ribbon, delicately embellished with a heart-shaped ribbon slider. For a totally coordinated look, you could even try to tie this with up with a piece of wedding jewellery you'll be wearing on the day, or perhaps heart-shaped table confetti in the same size and shape.
We love any excuse to get the wax seal supplies out - and what better excuse than wedding stationery? Make your guest feel super special by hand stamping a sprig of gypsophila atop each invitation using bold and beautiful red wax! grab yourself some printable vellum to create a bespoke wrap which can slide around the invitation itself - keep the seal at the back of the card, and position the text off-centre to allow space for the seal and flower. Again, you can customise this idea to tie it in with your own wedding theme; if there's a plant or flower that will feature in your bouquet or decor, why not use it in your invitation too?
If you've ever explored the world of journaling or scrapbooking, then you may want to dive into your craft stash and dig out your washi tape supply for the last of our wedding invitation ideas! Washi tape is a fantastic way to add eye-catching colour and detail to stationery, and it's so easy to apply too. This design has been created by adding five strips of washi tape down the centre as a focal point, and then built up with contrasting layered white card and gold glittered card. Adding a chocolate box style bow to the centre with a gold sparkler is the perfect finishing touch, and means you can print the invitation details inside the card, instead of on the front.
