Making our wedding invitations (part 2)
It has been quite a while since we’ve worked on our wedding invitations. I remember lots of my married friends telling us how fast the time goes once you hit the year of the big day; I knew they were talking sense, but didn’t quite realise just how fast time would fly!
We have now completed the ‘outside’ of the invitations – hooray! And we’re so pleased that they look like what we had imagined! In my previous post – Making our wedding invitations (part 1) – we stamped the flower design onto squares of white paper and I finished making the envelopes. Now, we have stamped our names onto smaller pieces of white paper which are then stuck on the front. We stamped a mixture of ‘Clare and Tom’ and ‘Tom and Clare’ so that they’re all a bit different.
The stamps that I used for this are all really small and so it was quite difficult to get them all perfectly neat and tidy. At first I was quite frustrated by this, but then I realised that it was quite good to show the hand stamped quality so we just discarded the ones that looked really rubbish! If you’re interested in buying these stamps, I bought them from Pretty M on Etsy
Now, the final step is to cut out and attach the inserts – hopefully we’ll get them done this weekend so we can get them in the post soon. So exciting!

I love how the overlapping hearts make a star at the centre!
Can’t wait to see one of these for real!
Yay! Thanks Helen! We’re hoping to finish the inserts this weekend – aiming for next week to post them out unless work gets in the way!xx
Your invitations look great so far! I tried to use those tiny letters on a birthday card for my friend and I never quite got the hang of it. Guess I just need to keep practicing because yours look great!
Thank you so much! It does take a LOT of practise with those tiny stamps…what I haven’t shown here is the large number of discarded ones!
