Brushstroke Wedding Invitations
These white envelopes got an instant upgrade with just two strokes of craft paint. The DIY technique is so quick and easy that you can even use it on invites—without feeling like you’ll screw them up! For sheer coverage that lets the text remain visible, choose a light shade and wet the brush first.
- Invitation suite (a heavy paper stock works best)
- Bristle brushes
- Acrylic paint
FOR THE ENVELOPES:
1. Dip a dry brush in paint and quickly paint a stroke on the inside flap of the envelope.
2. Continue brushing envelopes assembly-line style with the same paint color. Once envelopes are dry, use the same technique with a second paint color to create a layered look.
FOR THE INVITATIONS AND REPLY CARDS:
1. Dilute paint with water and dip brush in paint.
2. Add brushstrokes over type.
Note: The paint should be diluted with enough water so you can clearly read the type on the invitations and reply cards.
