Gala Invitation in Black with Red Edge Painting

No. 9 of 2010

3-ply black square invitation pigment foil printed in red and white
with red edge painting.

This invitation made my Top Ten just because the red and black is so tempting! The red edge on this heavy black card would get anyone's attention, and hopefully did for this Frist Museum fundraiser. Red gloss hand lettering across the top contrasts nicely with the stately white typesetting.

Designed by Lauren at
Rock Paper Scissors in Tennessee, this was the first project Real Card Studio has attempted with edge painting.

For the placecards and menus, we did another 3-ply card with black on the outside and red in the center, and I think I may like how those turned out even more than the red edge painting! You'll be seeing more of these great paper combinations from Real Card Studio in 2011!

Color Palette: Red and Black

Real Card Studio partnered with Rock Paper Scissors in Franklin, TN for this invitation.
