In preparation for our Card Making with Creativ Company shows this Saturday we thought we’d share this handy, Monochrome Wedding Stationery tutorial with you!
This easy step-by-step is made from a greeting card decorated with black design paper and white textured paper with printed text for each of your guests. Decorated with a matching waistband made from the same materials and a rhinestone sticker, this will be sure to add some bling to your day. Download the envelope template and line it with glitter paper to make it extra special for your wedding day!

Make a waistband by cutting a 4cm wide piece of black design paper with glitter to the same width as the greeting card. Make a ‘name tag’ in the same manner as the invitation itself (see the next step). Make the lining for the envelope from the same paper using the template
which is available as a separate PDF file for this idea. NB: the lining can be loosely placed inside the envelope or secured with tape.
Step 2. Print text on textured paper. Trim to make it slightly smaller than the sheet of glossy black design paper. Attach to the greeting card/waistband with double-sided adhesive tape (shown here on the front of the greeting card). Alternatively, attach inside the greeting card which can also be used as a wedding list etc.
Step 3. Cut a 10 x 14.5 cm piece and a 1.5 x 10 cm piece of black design paper with glitter to make the menu card. Cut a 9.3 x 13.8 cm piece of glossy black design paper. Print text onto textured paper. (NB: Ensure there is enough space for the narrow glitter border at the bottom). Trim to make it slightly smaller than the piece of glossy design paper. Assemble with double-sided adhesive tape.
Step 4. Print a name on textured paper, trim and attach it onto the place card along with a border made from design paper with glitter using double-sided adhesive tape. Add a rhinestone for decoration.
