Handmade 70s Invitations
70s homemade party invitations take a walk on the lighter side of things while bringing people back to a time when it was carefree and fun. The design elements that go along with a 70s party theme include retro edges, color, flowers and distinct shapes.
Instead of the standard card stock with sharp edges, change them to rounded edges. This automatically enhances the look of the cardstock with very little effort or skill. For those that have a steady hand, simply eye the cut would work or for most people, lightly taping a curved corner on the invitation as a template to cut from works best.
When the base is ready, it is time to add color. Watercolor paint is very useful when trying to blend multiple colors together. If skilled in inking, try using ink as the color enhancer. Distressing the cardstock slightly will also add a little edge to the homemade invitation.
Multi-colored flowers or even brightly colored flowers would be a nice touch for an invitation that is aimed strictly at woman or girls. If having men or boys at the event, it is best to stick with swirls of color and distinct shapes. Adding flowers might deter men from coming to the party as they might find it too girly.
Music can also be represented on the card and if the 70s party theme is revolved around a certain band, be sure to include that in the homemade 70s party invitations as well. Homemade party invitations are only as limited as the person makes it. Have fun and think 70s!
As the year ends prepare a huge party celebration for all your loved ones with a 70s theme. You can decorate with feathers, beads, candles, confetti, and balloons. These items are cost effective and look amazing.
