Full Instructions:

  1. Using the free Word templates above, print the cards onto the A4 sheets of card. There will be two cards per sheet. Our template includes a space for your rubber stamp motif or you can print a logo or picture if you would rather. We suggest you practice on plain white paper first so you don't waste your card.

  2. Cut the sheets in half so you have got 2 equal size cards from each sheet (a guillotine provides the best finish - but scissors or a craft knife are fine if you're careful!). Before folding, each card should be 297mm wide and 105mm tall.

  3. If you are using a rubber stamp - practice on some paper first to check how hard to press and where the middle of the stamp falls. When you are confident, carefully stamp your motif onto the space on the cards. Leave to dry for an hour.

  4. For the best finish - use the blunt point or back of a knife and a ruler to score the inside of your cards exactly in half. Now fold along the score for a neat and easy crease.

Other things you can do with this invitation

  1. Silk paintings look amazing - they do take time but if you're an arty type, give it a go. You can buy silk, gutta, pins, brushes, silk paint and frames from most art shops. Set up a frame and draw hearts or stars with the gutta, leave to dry, then paint. Cut the silk into mini pictures and use double sided tape to stick them to the front of the cards, then outline with gutta.

  2. A vellum outer cover looks particularly sophisticated - fix with glue to the outer back edge of the card - or for the best finish, use a ribbon/bow (see below).

  3. Wax seal the envelopes - our wax is post proof! If you are sealing your envelopes, you can create a contrast seal by stamping your wax seal onto your ink pad first. This works best with either gold or silver ink in red or blue wax.
