Wedding March Place Cards

Picture 307
A very musical colleague at work showed me the picture below of a wedding favor she fancied, but the groom had said “no!”
piano favor
But as a compromise she asked if I could “do” a similar place card. Below is what I came up with…(I hope my illustration makes sense)
Place Cards
It took a lot of fiddle farting on Publisher, but I sorted it out  in the end, getting  six  place cards on one sheet of A4 card.  The music I’ve used is one of the opening bars to Wagner’s Wedding March, and is on the front and back of the card, so the design can be seen from both directions.

As a finishing touch I have added a very small, sparkly flat backed gem just before the end of the music on both sides of the card.

As my sister would say ….. “It’s all in the detail”

These are lovely and I'm full of admiration as I know what fun it can be to line things up in Publisher!
ps I just knew you'd put a sparkly bit in there somewhere ;) but it does just finish it off

Fantastic, very professional. I've never thought of doing place cards in Publisher as I make wedding stationery for family & friends. I'm going to 'have a play' today and see how I get on. Thanks for the inspiration.

fantastic. I've been setting templates up for things such as this in publisher and word and know all about the hard work involved. These are great.
