DIY Wedding Invitation Card

After searching online and offline for weeks for the invitation card suppliers, at last we've decided to go d.i.y. There goes my journey to search for ideas and wedding supplies, wedding stationeries and etc. Thorough research was done to get the theme and to express a unique personalized wedding card, reflecting the  bride's style and not forgetting to stick within a budget. So, here goes my draft using Paint to create colour combination and to see roughly how it'll look like. A modern chinese design with a combination of the word "hei' - double happiness and pink polka dots motif (bride's fav). Colour was chosen based on the day-time ceremony theme colour. (Hint of fuschia, pink or light pink).

-The first sketch-

 -Thought of combining lace effect on card-

-"Hei" preparation-

 -Randomly punched-out leaves design and got this design, 
a plain bright pink ribbon in front of pink polka dot ribbon-

 -Trying out with straight border 'pearl red and pearl white colour' with swiss dots ribbon-

-Trimmed border with craft scissor to give a wavy border design-

That's all my draft. Probably will stick to the last one. Simple design but requires time and patience. Well, isn't that what DIY is all about?
