Happy Monday everyone! I love starting the week with a gorgeous set of wedding invitations, and today is no exception. These invitations come to us from Amy of Saint Gertrude Design and Letterpress in Melbourne, Australia. Amy combined a laser-cut tree overlay with two-color letterpress printed wedding invitations to achieve a modern, yet rustic, aesthetic for these wonderful invitations.
From Amy: Georgie and Dave’s wedding invitation suite was quite an epic project, merging two-colour letterpress print with an intricate laser cut folder. This couple may be Melbourne cityfolk, but their attitudes and values were just so beautifully down-to-earth that I felt a simple but rustic vibe was needed for their invitations.
They were married under a canopy of trees at The Boulevard in Kew and rather than just paying lip service to this, an intricately illustrated tree was laser-cut to create a silhouette over the letterpress printed invitations underneath. A heart cut into its trunk aligned perfectly with the couple’s heart monogram below and this motif ran throughout all of their stationery. The whole suite was tied up in cotton string with a gift tag.
Beautiful! Thanks Amy!
