Invitations and greetings cards in pink and purple

When you make your own greeting cards and craft your own invitations, it can add a touch of originality and creativity to any occasion. And having a plan in mind before you start is always a good idea. We have some fantastic ideas to help get you on your way including party invitations, birthday cards and thank you cards. All you'll need is some sheets of card in different colours and edding matt paint markers. We recommend using a white marker as it looks paricularly striking on purple card or on any other dark surface.
