Arts & Crafts-Style

I thought I’d share a recent project I did. I was happy to meet Susan and Bob, a really sweet couple, with a love of Arts and Crafts design. I started my design with their favorite font, and built it up from there. The inspiration for the pattern came from an actual Arts and Crafts stained-glass lamp. We started with a Save the Date:

Arts and Crafts Wedding

Then followed with stacked invitations, and a postcard-RSVP, and a simple envelope seal:

Invitations for Brookes

I got to plunge into a pretty cool project this week, which I thought I’d share. Brookes, a bride in need, came to me after receiving a very delayed wedding invitation sample in the mail from an online company, and not feeling happy with it at all.  We quickly kicked into gear, and managed to settle on a design, and finish the job in just a couple days. The wedding style is romantic and whimsical in white, purple and green. With this in mind, I designed the invites based on the strings of hanging orchids that will be featured in the ceremony. The RSVP card then hangs on an actual string, attached by a orchid cutout. The invitation-maker in me was definitely upset with the invitation-designer in me, for deciding that a rush project should involve 80 tiny orchid cutouts.  But the designer part of my brain always wins, and in the end I am very happy with the results. And more importantly, so is Brookes.
