Think about incorporating your colors into a motif on your wedding invitations and then streamline both of the shades through the rest of the wedding paper. This will create a cohesive appeal. A great example of a formal wedding invitation typically comes in ivory, cream, or white card stock and paired with black or gold font. However, this is your special day, so choose what you want.
Textures. You may not think so, but texture is an important aspect of your wedding invitations. Remember, texture is anything you can feel with your skin, and in this case, with your hands. If you can, use embossed or textured paper as a backing. This can add so much dimension and beauty to your wedding invitation. Balance. In art, balance refers to how "heavy" one side of the artwork is to the other. You should use the same concept in your DIY wedding cards.
