Finally the design is decided on...

It's already April and finally the design of the invitations are almost done. :) With the help of my MOH I worked a lot on the invitations. While she was spending her time cutting and folding the folders, I designed the content and started sewing the invitations together.

Here are the folded and partially sewed folders.

My fiancé and I chose fern for our wedding symbol, as its shape is versatile and we love its playful look. :) So I carved lots of fern stamps for the invitation:

I also created a little logo with the first letters of our first names. :) We wanted it simple with little scrollwork, so it wouldn't be too corny. ;)

I loved carving the stamps. But I still have problems to carve letters. They never turn out as good as the drawn one. If anyone has a good advice for carving letters, please let me know!! I had to carve our logo 5 times till I was more or less content with the result. I'm a perfectionist...I know. ;)

And finally I finished drawing the program and the map.

Now everything has to be scanned, put together on the computer, printed out, cut to the right size and embellished with stamps!
I'm excited how the final invitation will turn out and looking forward to showing you the result. :) We want to send them out in the middle of April, so 1-2 weeks to go! :D


  1. So so so pretty! I love fern and carving stamps! and I made a fern stamp too;)

  2. You are so impressive! I love the colors you're using, and the fern stamps are gorgeous. I can't wait until my stamp carving supplies arrive from Korea. I shipped the on a slow boat to the U.S. and they are taking forever! >.<

    1. Shipping with a boat indeed takes forever! I remember shipping all my crafty stuff with a boat from Korea to Germany back then. It took weeks, but when it arrived, it was like birthday and christmas together! :D

  3. so nice to see all your preparations! It will look wonderful of that I am sure!

  4. Dear Yoojin
    I love your invitation cards and I want to create ours in the same style.
    Can you give me a hint which size your cards (inner and outers) had and where you got the paper from?
    Thank you very much

    1. Hi Daniela,

      sorry for the late answer and thank you for your kind words. :)
      At the end of this post, you find the online shop where I ordered the Kraft paper from: http://creatingimpossiblegardens.blogspot.de/2013/10/the-day.html

      I cut the paper in half and folded at about 4,8cm, 10,2cm, 10,2cm and 4,8cm. The size of one card is a bit more than 10 x 15cm.

      Hope that helps,
