A Wedding Because They Cantaloupe

So. Collaboration Week Continues.


Kelsey and I decided to do the design assignment You’re Invited! (worth 3.5 stars). The task: Creating invitations for different events says a lot about what is going to happen. Make an invitation for either any event, whether it occur or not. Pick an event from a movie even! What does the invitation say about the event? Get creative.

So as you all know, we had to incorporate our characters into all of our assignments this week. For this assignment, Blair’s eldest son Charles Jr, is getting married, and an invitation was sent to Stella. I was in charge of creating the invitation while Kelsey was in charge of creating the RSVP card.

To make the invitation, I looked up some templates on the internet. The one I liked the most was this: weddingchicks-download-1426191080

However, I didn’t like the bottom of it, so I ended up cropping it out, and creating my own bottom. I tried to find a blue that somewhat matched the blue of the heart balloon for the bottom. I already had downloaded these fonts for other assignments, and for fun, so they were easy to pull from. I also had to pick a name for the spouse-to-be of Blair’s son. I am a little bit obsessed with the Duggars from 19 Kids and Counting, and the Bates from Bringing Up Bates. Don’t ask why. It’s somewhat embarrassing, but whatever. I’ll admit it. One of the Bates girls is having a baby girl, and her name is Allie Jane. I thought it flowed well and I just picked a generic last name because she’s getting married and what does it matter anyway. So then I found a place in Michigan for them to get married, and voila.

This is my final creation:

Kelsey had to make the RSVP Card. This was the template:weddingchicks-download-1426191184

However, I thought it was ugly, so I used Gimp to erase all of the black words. I sent Kelsey This:

SO We had fun with this assignment, and if anyone else’s character wants to come to the wedding, there is an open bar and we have a few extra invites we can send out!

7.5 Stars down, 2.5 to go!

  1. may be coming to you to do my wedding invitations in how ever many years, so good thing that after today, we are officially blog buddies :)#ds106 #4LIFE [… also, the corny pun was much appreciated :D … “corny” to go along with the whole “food” theme ;)]

  2. The editing done to the originals greatly improved the aesthetics of the invitations. Matching the balloon color with the bottom half of the invitation and making more of the text on the RSVP card white made these cards appear much more professional. Well done!

  3. I really love this! The color scheme you have going on it so cute and the invitations in general are really well done! :)
