Bright & Colorful Cards from Tabletop Made

Carina first introduced me to Tabletop Made when she guest blogged back in April, and since then I’ve been enjoying their quirky cards.  I’m particularly loving some of these colorful birthday and celebration cards:

Jaime + Anthony’s Modern Woodgrain Wedding Invitations

I love, love, love the texture in these beautiful woodgrain and overall nature-inspired wedding invitations from designer Kate Holgate. Kate’s clients Jaime and Anthony are planning an outdoor wedding in Sun Valley, Idaho and wanted an invitation that reflected the natural surroundings while preserving the elegance of the event. The entire suite just comes together perfectly – from the woodgrain elements to beautiful blind impression details to gorgeous typography to soft muslin bags.

From Kate: Jaime and Anthony are getting married outdoors in the beautiful historic Sun Valley, Idaho. Sun Valley is a laid back resort town surrounded by gorgeous mountains with numerous aspen groves. Jaime was open to ideas and only requested that I somehow tie in an ‘aspen’ theme.  Her wedding colors are coral and khaki, and I introduced teal to the invitation color palette.

The save the date cards have a tree ring timeline in blind letterpress showing important dates in Jaime and Anthony’s relationship.  For the invitation suite, I created a pattern that repeats the aspen leaf symbol (also blind letterpress), a wood grain texture, and used vintage-inspired typography.  Stamped muslin bags replaced the traditional inner envelope.  The overall result feels elegant and natural.

{happy weekend!}

Whew!  It was a wonderful week, but also a busy one!  I’m feeling good as we head into the weekend… because we’re finally under 50 days until my husband comes home!  Five months have already gone by, and now we have just a month and a half until he comes back home.  I can’t wait to have him home – but I also have a bunch of house projects that I want to finish up before he gets here, so I definitely need to get a move on.  I’ll definitely be spending some quality time with my to do list this weekend, but first I get to grab lunch with this awesome lady.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  But in the meantime…

…some links for your weekend!

This week on Oh So Beautiful Paper:

That’s it for me this week!  Don’t forget to check back bright and early on Monday for our next summer contest and to win some beautiful letterpress goodies.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you all back here on Monday!  xoxo
