Wedding DIY: How To Make Scratch Card Wedding Invitations
Me & Em have always been a fan of invitations that have something a little bit exciting about them, ESPECIALLY when you have to reveal the message yourself through some crazy way! We’ve seen a few scratch card ‘save the dates’ around the net and decided that a scratch card wedding invitation would be equally awesome! To make the whole process even easier I’ve created some downloadable invitations and all you need to do is choose which colour you want & print a load out onto some A4 white card!
You could of course do this with other invitations if you like, just mix up the scratch card formula and paint away!
You will need:
♥ White card ♥ Washing up liquid ♥ Acrylic Paint (I chose a glitter one!) ♥ Paint brush ♥ Double sided tape
Step 1: Download and print out your invitations, then fill them in with the details you want to be revealed underneath!
Step 2: Mix up your scratchable liquid. It needs to be 1 part washing up liquid, 2 part acrylic paint.
Step 3: Cut out your double sided tape and place on top of the area that will be painted/scratched.
Step 4: Paint your first layer of mixture onto the card and allow to thoroughly dry
Step 5: Add on your next layer of paint/washing up liquid mixture and allow to dry again. Repeat this step until you can no longer see anything underneath.
Step 6: Leave to dry really really well (I left mine over night) then voila! Feel free to do a tester scratch! Go on…I know you want to…
Much bespoke love
