Valentine’s Day Party Invitations

6 March 2012

Friends, even though I shared a few photos from our Valentine’s Day party, I completely forgot to tell you about the invitations! Since I was only making four, I could go all out with the handmade details, and I did! Here they are:

I printed the text in black and white on watercolor paper, then penned in hearts in black ink. I then watercolored over the hearts with pink and red, and backed the invites with deep red cardstock.

I had some pink and white baker’s twine lying around that made a perfect “belly band” of sorts.

The finishing touch was the watercolor envelope liners. I scanned the sheet of paper that I used to test the watercolor strokes while coloring the hearts, then printed a few pages and cut them to size. Voila!

In case you missed my post about the party, the photos are right here!
