The exquisite Pearls & Lace templates are not new to Download & Print. The delicate lace and classic fonts have long struck a chord with DIY brides, and this design has consistently been a top download here. But the tone-on-tone lace and cream card stock, while certainly pretty, isn't the perfect color scheme for everyone. We've been asked for the lace in all colors of the rainbow and today... your wish is my command! I've picked the top color requests and you can now download the full 15-piece Pearls & Lace bundle in six colors. Not quite a rainbow, but close. The text color can be changed in Word after you download the templates giving you the flexibility to truly make the templates fit in with your wedding color scheme.

Go Classic, Vintage, or Rustic Shabby Chic

When I originally designed this invitation I had classic pearls and lace in mind. Elegant, understated, and timeless. However when all the color requests started to flood in I realized how versatile the lace design can be. Here are my top picks for how to pair these paper goods with different wedding themes.

The original design. The simple stick on pearl embellishment gives it such class, see the easy how-to here. Use this for a black tie wedding or just if you prefer a timeless look. Think taupe bridesmaids dresses with ivory bouquets, a stunning ballgown, demure updo, Rolls Royce, champagne toasts, classic black tux, Tony Bennett, ballroom and elegant jewels. I don't think you can go wrong with this combination.

A black backing card with a doily-esque border adds a statement piece to the invitation. See how I created the backing card and get the sized down version of the invitation template for free in my latest tutorial. I have lots of ideas on how to use the doily punch on your paper goods. I'm in love with the simplicity of creating the doily edge and the jaw-dropping finished product. I'd pair this invitation with vintage china, mis-matched frames, a birdcage veil, vintage trunks, red lips and a parasol.

Rustic Shabby Chic

Lastly the lace design lends itself well to a rustic shabby chic wedding. Here the sized down invitation is printed in navy on cream card stock, and backed with corrugated card. A lace belly band finishes the look. This invitation inspires me to think barn wedding, burlap, fresh herbs, lawn games, chalk boards, line dancing, cowboy boots, fairy lights and Johnny Cash.

To get your creative juices flowing download the sized down invitation in black and pair it with the backing card of your choice. See the video tutorial or pictorial for how to create the doily edge, or simply attach the invitation to color card to bring in your wedding accent color.

Hopefully I've offered a little inspiration. The design holds up on it's own without any further embellishments, and now you have six colors to choose from! But you know me, I jump at any opportunity to get a little crafty and I think the simply embellishments take the invitation to a new level. If you find a different embellishment to rock this invitation please share your craftiness. I love getting pictures in my inbox!

    Hello, I wanted to know if this design can also be printed on a hanky? I am interested in possibly printing the invitation or the thank you card on a hanky and keeping everything is on card stock paper? I like the plum color.

  2. Chantal says:

    Hi two questions, what color paper do you have the gold printed on? Cream or white? Also can the actual normal size
    Invitation be printed on the lace dyi back? I just like it with the original design on the top
    And bottom so don’t know if you have that option?! Thank you!

    • Lisa Fenstermacher says:

      The gold set is printed on cream card. If you mount the standard 5 x 7″ invitation to a backing card you will end up with a finished invitation that is quite large, and won’t coordinate with standard envelopes. Not to say it can’t be done. You can purchase an envelope punch board and make your own envelopes, it’s not difficult, just an extra step for you.

      • Chantal Carriere says:

        Okay, thank you! Two more questions.. Is there a belly band that goes with this set if purchased? Also, does the reception and response card come in the correct size option to do a doily backing card by any chance? THANKS!

        • Lisa Fenstermacher says:

          A belly band does not come standard in the set. We are happy to create you one. Use the custom template form to make this request.

          In the notes section explain that you would like a matching belly band and let us know which color you will be using.

          The RSVP card is 3.5×5″ and the enclosure card is 4×6″. If you are trying to get the finished size of your invitation to be 5×7″ you could use the enclosure card and a backing card. Or use the free invitation template we provide in the backing card tutorial.
