Traditional Wedding Invite Template

I've spent sometime typing out the traditional wedding invites with Chinese wordings.
Gosh i thought it was relatively easy till i get down to doing it in photoshop format.

After which i deeply regretted. Could have done it in microsoft word too. Just that photoshop makes the layout easier i guess?

Anyway the chinese wordings are so cheem. To make it worse, it's supposed to be in a vertical format, making the layout all the more trickier.

But the good thing is, I've completed mine! Ahha..as we only need less than 20 pieces of traditional invites with chinese wordings for the relatives, we've no choice but to DIY.

Print, cut and insert it ourselves.
Luckily i found this old treasure of mine. = Patterned Scissors!
bought it while i was doing scrap booking sometime back and i remember at a steal too! Finally it came into good use. hehz.

2 major advantages of using the scissors. Firstly the inserts look so much nicer. Secondly, cos it's patterned even if you did not managed to cut a straight line, it's absolutely ok as it's not obvious at all. I've problems cutting things straight somehow..lolx



Although it may not look as professional as the usual hot stamped gold or silver traditional invites, we're still pretty satisfied with our DIY project.

Though we have to rush through this by CNY so that the invites can be distributed whilst visiting and that we probably had a few squabbles here and there, Mr. Keir still agrees that the sense of satisfaction upon completion of this project is simply great!
