Invitations refreshing as the ocean!
The classic quatrefoil, "four leaf" shape has been popular in recent years, and for good reason. The shape is both interesting and enduring, originally popularized as an architectural detail in the renaissance and Gothic periods in particular. When I was researching ideas for a new destination wedding invitation suite, I came across this shape often in luxurious hotel swimming pools and fountains. That was enough excuse for me to incorporate it into the design of our Sugarcane collection.

Adding interest and dimension to this invitation, before die-cutting the quadrafoil shape, we duplexed the backside with a light blue paper, so that the backside is a different color. I repeated a close crop of the diecut shape into the border of the reply and reception cards. The stunning hand lettering gives the invitations an ocean breeziness that is both romantic and beautiful.

My favorite piece of the suite is the engagement invitation. I love the zoomed in and cropped calligraphy of the couple's names. Single color letterpress printing on lush cotton paper, this piece would definitely stand up as the wedding invitation itself.
