4. Discover Your Visual Style  

Most invites adhere to or borrow from unique aesthetic styles. These styles have an impact on the entire look of the card, including the color scheme, images, and text.

Finding the correct design for your invitation might be difficult at first since there are so many options. Conduct a considerable study to assist you to choose which styles will work best for your event. 

A mood board is a great way to collect inspired samples of art styles, typography, and color schemes all in one location. You may also look for existing invitation styles on sites like Pinterest or Shutterstock's collection of invitation designs.  

5. Play around with Templates  

Starting with a predesigned invitation template is an easy way to get your design adventure started. They're especially useful if you're not used to making invitations or if you're in a hurry.

You may make things even easier for yourself by using a pre-designed template in Shutterstock Editor, which you can rapidly edit within the program.  

Many templates include example text (“Lorem Ipsum”) and a color palette to demonstrate how typography and color work together inside the design.

The majority of the design and graphics work is already done in a template; all you need to do is swap out the wording and color schemes to make the unique invitation card more customized.

This is possible in Illustrator by utilizing the Type Tool (T) and the Color or Swatches panels.
