Modern First Communion Invitations

Annemarie asked me to design some unique invitations for her older daughter's first communion celebration. I came up with this beautiful invite that is hand-duplexed to make it extra thick, die cut, and accented with crystals. The pink and black swirls, mixed with the dotted border and the die-cut shape make it very modern. The colors can be changed --email for more info!

Can you see how thick they are?

Black Velvet Vegas Invitations

One of my favorite clients, Tiffany, asked me to design some swanky invitations for her husband's 30th birthday celebration in Las Vegas. 

We went with a black velvet book fold with a double layered metallic invitation:

The pocket on the left holds the travel info card & the rsvp postcard:

I love these Vegas inspired choices for the RSVP!

The invitation is a white metallic card with a black metallic backing (it's very subtle here):

Each invitation was wrapped with a printed band using the diamond "30" pattern:

All stacked up and ready to go!

The final invitations went into silver mailer envelopes with printed wrap around mailing labels:

Blush + Gold + Glitter!

Regina and Chris are getting married this spring and are using blush pink and gold as their wedding colors.

We went with a very classic letterpressed doublethick invitation, printed with gold ink.

See how thick the invitation is compared to the thickness of the other cards?

Regina's grandmother nicknamed her "Sparkle" growing up, so we incorporated a gold glitter band with a letterpressed monogram and a gold leaf metallic card to hold all of the pieces together.

We used blush pink metallic envelopes with the suite, and the same color for the rehearsal dinner inserts that were sent to the bridal party.

Regina added gold leaf metallic liners to her envelopes to make them a little more fancy:

I loves these invitations -- so simple and elegant, but so much fun with the blush envelopes & glitter band!

My son is obsessed with tractors, especially John Deere tractors. He has a John Deere cap that he wears  everyday -- it's the first thing he puts on in the morning, and the last thing he takes off at night. His teachers joked that they might not recognize him without it.

So when my friend Becky sent me this pin, I had to scrap the bubble-themed valentines I was originally planning and put my spin on these.

We used some fun valentine's Washi tape and attached little Valentine themed bubble wands from Michael's to the back. Hope everyone enjoys them!

Coaster Save the Dates

Aracelis and Nayland are getting married in June, and they wanted me to create coaster save the dates. These were so much fun to create -- we used an off-white pulp board coaster (like you'd find at a bar or restaurant) with gold foil printing. These were mailed to guests in blush pink metallic envelopes.
