Decide what type of flower pattern you wish to employ. Even after you have settled on featuring a flower corner design, you still have the choice of designing four non-touching corner creations, a top embellishment and a bottom embellishment, a left-hand creation, a right-hand creation, or so on.

Create or insert flower shapes, arranging the individual graphics as desired; graphic designers can create their own flowers from start to finish, but others may be interested in simply locating pre-made flowers and inserting them accordingly. Start by inserting a vine or leaf pattern and overlay a variety of flower graphics according to your tastes. Select shapes you like, disregarding colour conflicts which can be assuaged later.
Recolor particular objects as needed. Using the effects and tools located in your specific editing program, select and recolor clip art and graphics to coordinate the images and unify your invitation. Add your text, save the file, and order professional prints which can be stuffed in stamped-and-addressed envelopes.
