Nautical Wedding Stationary Design

Nautical Wedding Stationary Design
In the last article, we discussed the specifications for a wedding stationary design. Now we will discuss the designs for the individual cards, wrapper and box in detail.

As stated previously, this design was for the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew design team and is a good example of how to create a new design to coordinate with an existing product line. The wedding stationary design has a nautical theme and features the CCB Nautical Collection papers, E-Flute Kraft paper, fabrics, trims, charms and cords. Keeping with the nautical theme, I added my own stickers and tags, which were created for other BellaOnline tutorials.

Wedding Stationary SVG Cut File
The SVG cut file contains the cut lines for the three paper layers of the wedding invitation and two paper layers of the response card. Using the Silhouette Cameo's print and cut feature, the bride can add the text message inside the cut lines of the message areas for the invitation and response cards and cut multiples of each card.

The invitation card is cut from three layers of the CCB Nautical papers. The navy stripe and red chevron make a great background layer. Where these two papers join, I added an anchor border. Over the print and cut message text layer, I glued a few of my nautical stickers. To add texture, I wrapped the card with jute cord and added a real sea shell.

RSVP Card and Envelope
The response card has two paper layers. The base was cut from the Navy & Ivory Anchor card stock. As with the invitation, the response message will be print and cut with the Silhouette Cameo. On top I glued two more nautical stickers. The card is wrapped with jute cord. The CCB Kraft paper envelopes were a perfect match to the response card, especially after I added one of my nautical love message tags to the flap.

The Wrap
I love to work with the Canvas Corp fabrics, trims, charms and cords. So I decided to make a fabric wrap out of CCB sand colored burlap, to enclose both the invitation and response card. To hold the warp closed, I added a "belly band" of navy burlap fringe, a bow of jute cord, shell, metal charm and one of my love message tags.

The Invitation Box SVG Cut File
The SVG cut file contains the cut lines for the box bottom and box sides, that make the box foundation. The file also contains cut files for 3D inserts that surround the inside of the box and the box slip cover that works as a lid to hold everything in place.

The Invitation Box
For the box foundation, I used CCB Navy and Kraft Mini Dots card stock because the mini dots repeated the color in the burlap. The paper inserts inside the box were cut from the Nautical on Ivory card stock. To finish the inside, I added burlap fabric to the bottom and a shell at each inside corner.

The Outside Sleeve Cover
The outside sleeve for the box was cut from CCB Navy and Ivory Chevron. The belly band for the sleeve was cut from the sand burlap fabric. The second layer of band was the fabric from a disassembled Burlap Flower, which has such a great rough texture. Over these two fabric bands goes an E-Flute Kraft paper "buckle" with a few shells, one of my nautical stickers and two nautical love tags.
