Cutsey couple design

Posted by on Apr 20, 2012 in Featured, Wedding Invitations | 0 comments

The bride-to-be wasn’t too sure on a theme or what she wanted her invite to be like – so I was given free reign to go wild with my creativity and come up with a couple of different ideas based around what I thought she may like.

I messed around with a few ideas but this was the one that stood out most.  I just created a simple sketch of a married couple and delicately painted using gouache paint.  I wanted the design to be really simple and for all the focus to be on this painting. I kept the font and the colouring nice and basic by using a pearlescent white card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m really happy with this design myself – I hope you like it!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leave some comments below to let me know what you think. Oh, and here is a quote from the bride-to-be herself…

“All the different designs that you made for us blew me away and were great for inspiration due to my lack of creativity!”

Emerald theme

Posted by on Apr 14, 2012 in New Designs, Wedding Invitations | 0 comments

I was approached by the mother of the bride to create the stationery for her daughter’s wedding.  They were having a spring wedding so wanted a nice, fresh design.

Green was the colour of choice so I chose a crisp green to base the cards around.  I wanted to keep it nice and simple – in keeping with the spring feel – so I layered a pearl white card against a textured green card, used a decorative font and finished off with a gorgeous thick green ribbon with a tag for that final touch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you like the simplicity of this design, let me know your thoughts . . . . .

Butterfly save the dates

Posted by on Mar 17, 2012 in New Designs, Save the dates | 0 comments

I was commissioned to design some save the dates for a wedding that was using a butterfly theme. The bride to be wanted to include the baby pink colour she would be tying into the rest of the wedding so I came up with this idea.

I decided I wanted the save the dates to be fridge magnets.  I kept the font quite traditional and printed onto a gorgeous pearlescent pink card then backed against a sparkly dark grey and silver card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used a sparkly butterfly embellishment as the focal point for the save the date and finished off with an organza ribbon in a silver white colour.
