Since I design invitations for "the trade", I don't do a lot of one-on-one with customers for their specific events, so it is always a treat for me when I get to design invitations for friends and family, it's a chance for me to play.
This is an invitation that I'm working on for my aunt, and I'm loving it, and thought I'd share it with you. My niece provided the inspirational photos for how she is doing the event's decor, calling it "hippie southern vintage". I have to admit, "hippie" is not usually a word people use to describe my work, but I think I pulled it off!
My favorite part of the floral invitation here is that since we're doing such a low quantity, a mulit-color print run would be too expensive, so we're actually going to hand-color the flowers, which I think adds to the loose and natural look of this bridal shower invitation.
What do you think-- can I do hippie?

Margarita pocket folder in copper with lavender invitation letterpress printed in copper ink. Hand dyed silk bow. Hand lettered names.
This stunning B'n
Mitzvah invitation for twin girls came out so beautifully that it inspired one of the new styles coming to
Real Card Studio's
The colors are unusual without being weird, in fact I think the copper and lavendar combo comes of classic in a non-traditional way. The copper ink, even the most delicate type, letterpress printed so beautifully, but the bolder names,
by our calligrapher LeeAnn, are just outstanding. And what everyone loves most about Real Card Studio's
is, of course, the efficient pocket to hold the response set and additional party card. The whole invitation, orchestrated by the delightful and talented Ruth at
in Highland Park, Illinois, is pitch perfect.
