I am so excited to share this project with you!! I spent months completing a set of invitations for a couple getting married – this was extra exciting for two reasons:
1) The groom is my cousin (and the bride my soon to be cousin!)
2) It’s a 70’s themed wedding!!
We had a couple brainstorming sessions and they were pleased with the idea of invitations that looked like records out of the 70’s. Off I ran with it!! Here’s a quick look at how it all came together…
With a photo of each of them, I used Photoshop Elements to create their own cover art for the record; once I had created a full cover template (complete with extra info on the back for out of town guests), I had them printed on 8.5″ x 11″ glossy card stock. These covers were each cut, scored, and assembled by hand.
The Invitation & The Reply Card
The invitation was the actual record that came out of the sleeve created above – it is even proportionate in size to a real record. On one side, the guest would see the date of the wedding, record label (hey that’s me!) and the bride and groom’s names on the center sticker; on the other side, all of your essential wedding invitation information, with a little 70’s flare.
The reply card was a miniature version of the invitation record, except with the reply card info on the back, also utilizing some fun phrases from the 70’s and encouraging guests to share their favourite 70’s song – maybe they’ll hear their song played at the wedding 😉
The Complete Set!
Sure, it was a lot of work, but I think it was worth it!! The wedding is next Friday and I can’t wait to see everyone in their finest 70’s threads!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a creative day!
