A Very Fairy Sweet Sixteen!!! February 23 2015

No matter what the celebration is, the invitation will be an introduction to the imagination of the host. When we sat down with Jessica, we were shocked at how specific and creative her vision was. Every element of design was exactly how she imagined it - fairy inspired magical garden with flowers and vines. This fairy tale event did not leave anything out. The unique liner, 3 diamonds and 2 layer response card came together to become one of our most creative invitations.

This detail of the invitation shows the 3 diamonds that were placed on the invite. In this image you can see that the invitation was laid out with 3 layer metallic layers and many colors that were all the same tone. Using magenta to highlight the event and the birthday girl's name. The event information was colored purple to blend in with its surroundings. Below is another detail image.

Each diamond is individually hand glued. This entire event used over 200 diamonds.

Above is the 2 layer response card with a pink envelope. Mimicking the invitation with the ornate gate frame. Digho provides the addressing service which means all envelopes are addressed to the guest and response envelopes have the receiver address. This allows all the fronts to be the same, creating a unified look.

To keep the design consistent, the thank you card has some of the art elements.

Let’s have a wedding splash! September 25 2014

In the middle of the summer heat, there is nothing like a wedding celebration on the beach!! Hearing the waves crash while they say, “I do.” Then watching the sunset during cocktail hour and dancing the night away!!

This invitation was for a fishing captain and his “beach lover” bride. They wanted lots of sea art and fun colors (dark blue, aqua blue, light blue, purple and silver.)
When we walked away from our first meeting with them, we had no idea how all this was going to work together. But once we started designing, we “became” them and saw their vision as they wanted it to be. Having a multicolor design can be refreshing for an invitation. Like the sea, many things are happing but they are all part of one family. This wedding invitation came together in just that way. We added color in just the right elements, giving it a hint of excitement.
The invitation was a horizontal, rectangular two fold pocket. On the front is a double-layer tag with a ribbon that wraps around the entire pocket and finishes inside. Once opened the invitation sits on a light purple layer to highlight the event.
A direction card, reception card, and response card all held the invitation style, while the envelopes were a beautiful aqua blue. 
Maybe a little loud for some but just right for them!
Here are a couple other beach invitations from our portfolio.
