I was asked by friends in 2013 to create invites for their December 28th wedding. My friends are a lovely couple, with three lovely boys. He is a luthier, musician and music festival producer. She is a mom, avid baker and fierce knitter. Their after nuptials festivities were to take place in a little church-turned-community center. They had a private ceremony with family, and the party featured fine music, fine foods and very fine beverages.
The invitation needed to be home spun - and it was just that. I created them a tri-fold invite that housed all the pertinent info and used only one envelope and stamp. The invitation featured an actual tiny knot that was tied once you opened it, and a tear-off RSVP postcard. The whole invitation had the feel of letter pressed or hand printed textures. It was printed on my Canon i9900 on French Paper Co. Kraft card stock and used matching envelopes. I hand cut, folded and perforated each invitation in a limited run of 300.
French Paper Co. is a Michigan based paper company, and they were kind enough to feature my project on their popular design blog. Check that out here.
