Tea Time! Tea Party Bridal Shower Invitations

Recently I was asked to be the matron of honor in my good friend's wedding and I enthusiastically said yes! One of my duties of course is to host a bridal shower. My friend and I have always talked about throwing a tea party so this was the perfect opportunity to do so!

After hours (and I mean hours) of scouring Pinterest, I had a pretty solid idea of how I wanted this party to be. My first task was to create the invitations. Luckily, I had recently received some products from CutCardStock. I used their A7 envelopes and inserts. I was able to easily run them through my printer and the quality looked great.

I created a pocket using kraft cardstock and cut the notch with a circle punch. I wrapped a doily around the edges and added a thin, pink ribbon. Once I had printed the information on the insert, I mounted it onto matching pink cardstock and cut it into a large tag. I added a small tag with the RSVP information, making it look like a tea bag. As an extra touch, I stamped and embossed a tea pot on the outside of the envelope. I was also able to print the address information on the front of the envelope.

The bridal shower is in one week and I am super excited! Can't wait to share some pictures!

Did you use 5x7 card stock for both the pink tag and ivory overlay? Did you just cut the ivory overlay shorter? This looks so nice!

Hi Julia! Yes I did! The envelopes I used were for a 5x7 insert so the pink tag was a 5x7 and then I trimmed the ivory down.
