A Cordially Ombre Invitation

Here is an invitation I came up with, inspired by the recent trend of ombre, which is a popular dying technique for the hair… kind of like a fade into a lighter color. In college, we referred to this look as a “gradient.” It can also similar to a tie-dye technique.

I achieved this look using my watercolors. I chose a bright blue for this set, but it can be made in any color you’d like!

Watercolor Ombre Invitation Set includes: 5×7″ Invitation and coordinating white envelope, RSVP Postcard, and Save the Date.

The invitation has holes punched and is strung with thread tied into a bow.

The back has a reverse of the names and drop shadow.

RSVP Postcard can be mailed back without requiring an envelope.

Planning a wedding in advance? Send out a Save the Date so guests mark it on their calendars! Your picture will be added. (This couple’s photo courtesy of the talented Chuck Arlund.)

We can create other matching pieces for your big day, including: Directional Cards, Registry Cards, Thank You notes, Signs or Banners, Chair Markers, Place Cards, Table Numbers, Reception Display Labels… or anything else you can think of to make your day special!

Love this idea of picking a color for your bridesmaids and each of the getting a different shade of that color! How cute! (Picture found on Dearie Lovie blog.)
