Eco-Industrial Chalkboard + Linen Wedding Invitations

I’ve been drawn to some of the more industrial design trends for a while now, particularly when it comes to interior design, so I was thrilled when Jeannine from Blue Magpie sent over these industrial-inspired wedding invitations. Jeannine combined chalkboard effects with a lovely natural linen and floral accent elements. Pretty!

From JeannineI’m drawn to the strong, industrial look of chalkboard signage and really wanted to incorporate this into the paper suite. I thought the natural linen fabric was the perfect way of bringing in a natural “eco” feel.

I ended up applying a layer of linen to the back of the save the dates, making linen folders for the invitations, and even incorporated pieces of torn linen into the event pieces as well!

With so much focus on chalkboard and linen, I really wanted to balance this eco-industrial look with something very soft and pretty. I decided to bring in some very organic looking florals both on the save the dates and on the monogram, which was made into a stamp.

I applied layers of metallic purple and gold ink to create an ombre effect to stamp on the front of the linen folders that hold the wedding invitation pieces. Some more of the metallic gold was brought in with the invitation border and response envelopes.
