Blossoms flower

When my friend asked me to make her wedding invitation, I want to make her the best wedding invitation ever! After many back and forth discussions, we decided cherry blossoms will be the main design element.

She was quite happy with the blossom illustration alone, but I want to make it “pop”. Originally I had two “punch out” butterflies, but that idea was scratched because butterflies are not a good symbol in Chinese weddings. There is a famous Chinese story about star-crossed lovers (think Romeo & Juliet) where they ended up as butterflies.

With a stroke of luck, my friend found this flower punch at the dollar store. It’s also the perfect size. A super minor problem is the punch has 6 petals, and the illustration have 5 petals. But we’re not going to split hairs.

Using Illustrator, I created the blossoms and printed it out on 8.5×11″ paper.

Since I want the white blossoms to have a pink outline, there was a bit of trial and error to get the size just right in Illustrator.

Pink blossoms took less time to create in Illustrator. Just create the middle part of the flower over a pink background.

To attach the blossoms on to the invitations, I use double sided “foam” tape. Also found at the dollar store!

The complete wedding invitation.
