WHAT YOU'LL NEED
STEP 1 - PRINT TEXT
Start by creating Layer 1, the Inner Text Layer of your card. Using the Cristina Re Printstation 3 Program design and print your wording by selecting theSquare Centered option. Follow the prompts to design your perfect style of invitation. Once you have designed the text for inside the card, print onto Cristina ReIvory Luxury LinenA4 Paper.
STEP 2 - TRIM
LAYER 1 - TEXT LAYER
Once your Text Layer has been printed with Printstation 3, trim your design using the Cristina Re Paper Trimmer by following the guides to create a 90mm x 90mm square.
LAYER 2 - MIDDLE LAYER
To create Layer 2, the decorative black border Middle Layer, use a single sheet of Cristina ReEbony Luxury Linen A4 Paper then measure a 100mm x 100mm square and trim to size.
LAYER 3 - BASE
To create Layer 3, the Base Layer of the invitation, measure and trim a sheet of Cristina ReChevron A4 Designer DIY Paper to a 140mm x 140mm square.
STEP 3 - EMBELLISH PEARL FASTENERS
Add embellishments to your invitation by securing two Cristina Re Petite Silver Paper Fasteners to theText Layer. To do this, firstly make a small incision above and below the text directly in the center of the paper using a pin or blade. Next, insert the Cristina Re Petite Silver Fasteners through the middle of the incisions. Turn the paper over and split the tips of the fastener until flat. Next, affix all three layers together using the Cristina Re Tape Roller. First, center the Text Layer on top of the Middle Layer and adhere with the Cristina Re Tape Roller. Next, position the combined layers directly in the center of the Base Layer and secure together to finish your invitation.
STEP 4 - WRAP WALLET
With a second piece of Cristina Re Chevron A4 Designer DIY Paper, create a decorative square wallet to complete the invitation. Turn the paper to a landscape format then measure and trim 70mm off the top of the sheet, which will create a 140mm x 297mm wallet. Next, measure 75mm from each end of the wallet and score vertically down the paper with the Scoring Tool on the Cristina Re Paper Trimmer. Fold along these scored lines to create two neat sides of the wallet. Using the Cristina Re Hand Punch, create two holes on the edges of each side directly in the center of your wallet and thread the Cristina Re Ebony Grosgrain Ribbon through either side from the inside out. Enclose your invitation inside the wallet and secure shut to complete your invitation.
STEP 5 - SEND ENVELOPE
Finally, encase and send your perfect party invitation inside a Cristina Re Linen Ebony Square Envelope. Use Cristina Re Decorative Sticker Seals to close the envelope or cut innovative shapes with the Cristina Re Designer DIY Paper to impress your guests.
