Lily design

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

I created the lily design for one of my good friends Kate and her fiancé Sean.

They were fairly easy going when it came to the design. They knew they were having a deep red as the colour and that Calla Lilies would be the flower of choice for the big day, aside from that they just wanted something elegant and not too fussy so I came up with these!









I used a plain white gatefold card, then using layering and different textured card I created the focus point on the front.  I wanted the lilies to stand out so decided to delicately entwine them together and wrap them in a gorgeous satin ribbon secured with a dainty wire  to finish off the piece.  I used an organza ribbon in a deep red to wrap around the gatefold to tie it altogether.

For the inside of the invites, I combined a handwritten text with a standard font to complete the wordings. Finally, to combine the inserts together I used a delicate mulberry paper in burgundy to wrap them into one.  The same theme was pulled through the Order of Service.










The end result for me was perfect. My friend was delighted with the invites, as was her fiancé and I was really pleased both with their reaction and how my time and effort had paid off!
