Wedding Invite Collage

My best buddy’s nephew is getting married. The Mom of the Groom asked me to create a collage that features the invitation. She plans to give this to her future daughter-in-law at the bridal shower.

She asked me to incorporate the 3 types of flowers:
ivory roses • purple orchids • white calla lillies

Here is what I came up with:

I watched this video to create the roses - love how they turned out. Will be making more of these. I also made the orchid from paper. A few of the forum members from SVG Cuts directed me to some orchid SVGS (thanks ladies). I could not pull off the calla lilly using paper so I opted for a silk flower. I did make the rose and orchid leaves from paper. Some of them look real. The scalloped background and swirl frame are from SVG Cuts - I used Bo Bunny Jazmyne for the scallop and dark purple cardstock.

Here are a few closeups:

If you have a wedding coming up - why not make a collage featuring the invite?
It is a good excuse to play with paper!


  1. Oh my goodness! THIS IS JUST STUNNING! Perfect idea for a wedding gift! I just may scraplift for my brother's wedding!

  2. Absolutely beauitful.

  3. This is wonderful and a keeper for future ideas and showers I will be attending. You are definitely the "quwwn of collages.

  4. That's BEAUTIFUL! What a wonderful gift! I bet with some tweaking and adjusting, something similar could be made with a baby announcement. :)

    The bride is really going to cherish this for years to come!

    HUGS and thanks for featuring my video too!

    Have a great day!

  6. Hey--you're famous! I was searching for an SVG to use for Amy's shower game and typed "flower swirl SVG." Guess who was #1 on Google's list? I hearby dub thee Scrappy Doo.
