My colors are blue and white (davids bridals blue velvet color) and the gerbera daisies the bridesmaids will hold are white, yellow, hot pink, and red. ( I am ordering them from sams club). I want to make my own invitations to keep the price down, anyone know of ideas to incorporate the blue and a gerbera daisy in them. I lack creativity ) =

Any other ideas for a gerbera daisy wedding will be more then appreciated too!!! Thanks!!

How about doing a layered invite? You could have a piece of paper, dry and press the gerber daisy onto it. and then put a layer of clear paper on top (use clear glue lol). I do this all the time in scrapbooks and it always looks GREAT!

Craft stores like AC Moore and Michael’s have a HUGE selection of scrapbooking stuff and a LOT of books and samples. Go and browse and see what you can come up with. Maybe take a creative friend along for some hands-on interactive ideas ( =

Good luck!

I’d go with printing blue ink on white wedding invitations, and add the gerbera daisies as embellishments – vellum overlay/wrap printed with gerberas, stickers or buttons… Or you could print one on each invitation, as a ‘motif’.

These stickers are pretty for embellishments

Or print on these gerbera invitations, with blue ink

This link is for vellum paper that is blue, and has a gerbera daisy print.

Go to a craft store, and buy a really lovely gerbera daisy stamp, and buy pink, yellow, and red ink pads (Good qualilty, not crayola), and then buy good quality cardstock in a fresh bright white color, and use the stamp as an accent on the page, placing one daisy stamp in each color on the page. Then, you could either type and print out your info from your computer onto each page in midnight blue, or using a fine quality calligraphy pen in midnight blue, handwrite your information on the invite.

good luck!

Gerbera daisies are my favorite! Using Microsoft Publisher is very easy and intuitive. How about inserting a photo of daisies from Microsoft Clip art, then insert a solid white rectangle inside the photo (leave about a 1″ border of the full-strength photo around the border) at about a 30% transparency and that’s where you’ll put the wording (maybe in a blue font?). Then some of the daisies will show through.

My suggestions:

Use pale blue card stock. Print the invitation wording on there from your computer. On the corners or down one side, use a daisy-ish stencil or stamp in yellow and white (or two colors that suit your flowers, but I think yellow and white would look sweet on the blue) and pop those one.

Alternately, do stamping/stenciling on white/ivory card stock. Then punch two small holes at the top (they make daisy-shaped hole punchers!) and tie a blue ribbon at the top of the card.

You may not be able to find a stamp or anything that looks exactly like a gerbera daisy, but a normal daisy-looking one should be close enough for the purpose of the invitation.

I’m getting married in 6 weeks and was going to make my invites as well. I wasn’t getting too far with them and ended up buying a complete set off ebay for under $100 w/ shipping. I got 100 invites and envelopes, rsvp’s, reception cards, place cards, and labels and use my own daisy photo. They arrived last week and I LOVE them. I’m so glad I did this! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=350037748681&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=022
