Yup, I love to use the wedding invitations to make the wedding card.  It really is free designer paper and usually of a very high quality!  I even use the ribbons (or raffia in this case) if it comes along for free, too.  Plus it makes some of the original decisions to making a card much easier such as the feel or style and color scheme.

  13. Susan, these are just fabulous!

  14. Just love these, Susan! I’ve done the same thing on many occasions and I’ve always been pleased with the results — sure makes the cards to the happy new couple personal and special. Love your work on these cards!!!

  15. Susan, what a neat idea! Who would have thought of this, but you. I love your wedding cards!

  16. Wow! Beautiful wedding cards. And I like your idea of using the elements from the wedding invitation to make the card. You know you’re using colors, etc. that are pleasing to the bride.

    I did something similar when making graduation congrats cards this year. I used the grads’ school colors in choosing paper and cut out elements from the announcements to embellish my cards.

  17. I love it! They’re lovely cards and I love that you used the annoucment!

  18. You always do such a beautiful job, Susan! I LOVE your idea of taking the invitations and using the dp (and ribbon) for your wedding cards — so creative…and you KNOW they’ll love what you make! Both of these are simply stunning. I especially love the eyelet border punch with the pearls on the blue one.

    BTW, you were correct in reading between the lines on Chloe’s ‘song’ the other day — I didn’t want to come out and say it, but for a 9-YO, she’s pretty astute. 😉

  19. How clever, Susan. I never would have thought of doing this. Thanks for the suggestion. How very pretty these are.

  20. Wow! You are amazing and very creative, Susan! Thank you so much for sharing it!

  21. You’re brilliant!!! these cards are gorgeous, Susan!

  22. Both of your wedding cards are gorgeous, Susan!! So elegant too!! Love them!!

  23. What a great idea, I would have never of thought of that!!

  24. What a fabulous idea! Your cards are super….sure to be keepsakes!

  25. Love it Susan! What a great way to ensure the dp is perfect for the couple and recycle something at the same time! Beautiful cards!

  26. great idea, Susann!! I am sure too, that the brides will love that!! special the blue card is my favourite… that heart from SU is just gorgeous and you put it perfect in scene!

  27. What a brilliant idea! I think even I might be able to make a card if half of it was done for me! And you know the bride will save it – very clever of you!

  28. They are beautiful, Susan! I like to reuse the invites too but I couldn’t do that on the ones I made yesterday. :0(
    The printed design on your first card is just gorgeous! What a fun invite!

  29. Such beautiful designs! Perfect for any wedding!

  30. Ooooooh, these are pretty! I’ve often used wedding invitations as inspiration for the card, but I’ve never used parts of the invitation, itself. It’s much more meaningful this way, and I can imagine the card becoming a wedding keepsake. How could they not love them? I certainly do!

  31. What a nice creation! Cards in heart shape are very cute and pretty. Really very nice work you have done.

  32. Well, this is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a marvelous job!
