Find cardstock for making my own wedding invitations? Red roses?

by DIY wedding planner on May 24, 2012

My sister is getting married in 4 months and were making her wedding invites, but were looking for elegant cardstock in black, red, or silver and I’ve looked online and in local scrapbook stores and haven’t found anything. Help PLEASE!! I’ve been looking for a month.

look at Target, Walmart, Fred Meyer (if in the right states) Joannes, Michaels, even look in bookstores.

Also, I bet it will have anything you are looking for (to some extent)

Michaels Craft stores usually have all of those things…and maybe if they dont you can ask them to order it for you…

Try looking at a copy/stationary store. Something along the lines of a Fed Ex Kinkos store. They usually have all sorts of different types of paper.

I found mine at Michel’s In Dayton, Ohio. They had ever color of the rainbow there. Wall Mart had a lot. Even the scrap booking department at Big lots have lots of paper. Staples also.
Congrats to you

We made our own invitations and they came out beautifully!

We ordered from two different websites.

The first we ordered our outer envelopes from was
The envelopes were really pretty and a great price. We paid 30 for 250 envelopes. Our envelopes did double duty for our save the dates and our invitations because we only needed 100 for each

We ordered all the paper from another website called
This website was really great because it let you purchase samples of any of the paper they had, including their pocket envelopes and stuff. And they send it to you so you can see it in your hands before buying in bulk. We bought 100sheets of card stock & 100 sheets of paper in metallic blue, 100 sheets of ivory vellum, and 100 metallic champagne pocket envelopes from here for under 150. We only paid about 7 in samples before we made the decision.

We have enough paper left over after making the invitations to do our own programs as well.

I hope this helps!!! Good luck

I used for my save the dates. They are great and inexpensive! But they dont have invitations or a huge selection of cardstock sizes. For my invites I’ll be using They have invites premade, DIY invites, invite ideas and TONS of cardstock in TONS of sizes.

hope this helps!
