DIY Doily Backer Card with Free Lace Wedding Invitation

SUPPLIES

DOWNLOAD, CUSTOMIZE AND PRINT

Download the free invitation template and save it to your computer. Download the free fonts listed below and install them on your computer.

Perpetua
Respective

Open the template in MS Word or Mac Pages and add your wedding details. Check. Check. And recheck your details. Just to be safe. Print the invitations on white or off white card stock.

Hint: I find paper between 65 lbs and 90 lbs works best. It’s a nice heavy weight, but not too thick to jam your home printer.

You can also send the file to an online printer or take it to your local FedEx Office store for printing.

 TRIM THE INVITATION

Using a paper trimmer or scissors, cut along the dotted lines. A paper trimmer will produce straighter cuts and will be faster, you can trim more than one sheet at once. Scissors will do the trick though.

TRIM THE BACKING CARD

Trim the backing card to 5 x 6.75”. If you use a paper trim you can measure using the ruler on the trimmer. If you use scissors you will need to measure and mark with a ruler and pencil and cut along your marks. Once you have one cut you can then use this as a template to cut the rest to size.

All the paper pieces are now cut out. You will have invitations trimmed to 3.875 x 5.625" and backing cards trimmed to 5 x 6.75”.

PUNCH CORNERS

Use the corner punch to punch the corners on each backing card.

PUNCH THE STRAIGHT EDGES

Use the long punch to punch along the straight edges. Use the guide on the punch to line up the doily indentations neatly.

Note: If you use a different punch set you may need to adjust the size of your backing card to accommodate the size of the punch. You don’t want any half punches throwing off the symmetry of the design.

 ATTACH INVITATION

Adhere short strips of doubled sided tape around the back edge of the invitation. You don’t need a ton of tape! Press the invitation firmly onto the backing card, eyeballing it to make sure it’s centered and straight.

You now have a gorgeously detailed wedding invitation that was made on the cheap, ahem, I mean made on a budget. Now use the punch to detail the envelope flap and pop everything in the mail.

The Ten of Pentacles

Keyword: Wealth
Meaning: Wealth, success and honour. A good family life, and excellent relations between generations. Inheritance and family property. This card can also be an indicator of marriage and carrying on the family tradition.
Reversed meaning: Hidebound tradition stifling new thought. Problems of inheritance and family disputes over money.

Treasure, Sentiment, Captivated
