beach invite If you are having a beach wedding, create this beautiful invitation to get your guests in the mood for golden sand, deep blue sea and clear skies.

Print the wedding invitation text onto the card using the template, the font shown is ‘tweed'.

Cut a piece of white card 4.5cm x 6.5cm and a piece of the Sky Blue Handmade paper slightly bigger.

Cut 4.5cm wide strips of Pale Blue Mulberry Paper, Sky Blue Handmade Paper and Gold Pearl Card.

Using the glue stick, adhere the Mulberry Paper to the white card base. Using the paintbrush and water make a fluffy edge to the sky blue paper, this will make the horizon of the sea. Next tear the gold card across the strip and layer 3 pieces onto the white card base to look like sand.

Link two of the Silver Wedding rings and thread a small length of ribbon through them. Use a Mini Glue dot to attach the rings to he gold ‘sand' and gently pull the ribbon over the top of the card, secure with a glue dot. Stick the base card to the slightly bigger Sky Blue Handmade Paper rectangle. Adhere to card. Finally add a satin ribbon bow to complete the design.

Make smaller, simpler versions of the layered beach scene to embellish your place cards and menus and give professional coherence to your design.
