Pocketfold Invitations

It's March and Spring is almost here. A lot of my spring and summer brides love to use bold colors in their weddings, but want to lighten up their invitations a little bit. A great way to do that is to go with a light colored base and accent it with one of the wedding colors.

For Jackie and Michael, we used an ivory metallic pocketfold, with a deep pink metallic backing layer and have all of the printed pieces on matte ivory cardstock. The lime green grosgrain ribbon ties in their garden wedding color and some green accents are included in the design motif of the invitation.

Their invitations included a folded booklet of directions and accommodations, a RSVP postcard, and a few also included a rehearsal dinner insert that matched the design.

Since their wedding was in July, Jackie wanted program fans. These were double-sided square cards attached to a wooden paddle. They can easily be adorned with a ribbon in your wedding colors, and they will keep guests cool in the warm weather.

I had a client contact me last month and asked me to create a logo design that she could use on her blog and facebook page. Here's the final product -- if you're on facebook, be sure to become a fan. You'll get some great recipes to try and also will have a chance to enter in some giveaways. You can thank me later! ;)
