These black, white, and gold foil wedding invitations from Carina Skrobecki Design and Lizzy Showman practically scream glamour! Carina drew inspiration from the wedding venue (and black tie formal style) to create this stunning Art Deco-inspired invitation suite. I love that Carina mixed flat printing (for the black and white elements) and gold foil – and the gold thread is the perfect finishing touch!
From Carina: Blakely and Matthew were an absolute joy to work with and together we created some of my favorite pieces to date. The two of them are getting married next month at the Arctic Club in Seattle, a landmark hotel from the early 1900s that was an exclusive club for men who struck it rich in the Alaskan gold rush (circa 1917). The building is beautifully ornate and the wedding itself will be a glamorous and formal affair, so we worked hard to have the invitations be the grand preview.
Each piece was printed offset in 100% black onto Ecru Crane Letra and then kissed with gold foil. We used patterns and borders to cue an Art Deco style, but also kept it fresh with clean, yet slightly era-inspired typefaces. Each suite included a main invitation with gold shimmer lined black envelopes — complete with gold calligraphy — a reply card and gold-stamped reply envelopes, and an accommodations card all wrapped together with a delicate gold thread.
Thanks so much Carina!
