Mary + Kevin’s Modern Yellow and Black Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Colleen from Cleanwash Letterpress sent over these beautiful letterpress wedding invitations that she designed for a recent bride – who also happens to be Colleen’s cousin!

Colleen came up with a modern design in a bold yellow, black, and white color palette – all printed on 100% cotton paper:

The rsvp card was printed on super-thick coaster stock for a bit of additional weight:

Since the wedding ceremony and reception took place in two different locations, Colleen printed a matching reception card with all the reception venue information for the bride to enclose in the invitation suite:

Ribbons of Red

I’m usually not the biggest fan of the color red, but today I’m really digging the contrast between the bright red and crisp white on these letterpress business cards designed by Ribbons of Red and printed by Angel Bomb Design:

The Ribbons of Red website is actually really cute, too (I’m kind of in love with their logo).

Papercut Wedding Invitations

These papercut Save the Dates and wedding invitations by Julene Harrison are beyond gorgeous:

For both the Save the Date and wedding invitation, the bride and groom had the main element laser cut from an original papercut from Julene, then attached the laser cut to a piece of pink card stock:

Lovely Calligraphy from Neither Snow

I’ve been a long-time fan of the gorgeous calligraphy from Mara at Neither Snow – and I’m thrilled to finally be featuring her work today!  As you’ll see below, Mara’s calligraphy combines haunting romanticism with a modern sensibility for an absolutely beautiful result:

Mara has been a teensy bit busy lately, having just recently graduated from grad school, packed up her house, and has spent the last couple of months traveling around India and England!  In addition to the commissioned pieces above, Mara’s work has been featured in the most recent issue of Martha Stewart Weddings and she’s currently in the process of revamping her already-beautiful website.  But in the meantime, you can check out Mara’s blog for other recent projects, and hopefully we’ll see more of her work back here again soon!

Kids Party Invitations, Part 3

This week, I’ve selected a few more kids party invitations to feature – ranging from girly to goofy.  First up, these playful yet sophisticated (well, at least as sophisticated as you can be for a 2 year-old) birthday party invitations from Chellé Paperie.  The tiny celebrant has a fondness for poodles, so the ladies at Chellé Paperie incorporated that love into the invitation in the form of a poodle silhouette – what a fun idea!

Next up, these garden-inspired letterpress invitations from Jennifer at The Paper Peony.  Jennifer kept things girly and fun with a pink and green color palette, as well as birds, butterflies, and little vines and flowers throughout the invitation:

The Dr. Seuss books were some of my favorites to read when I was a kid, so I was super excited when Amber from Sweet Life Designs sent over these Cat in the Hat-themed invitations that she did for her son’s first birthday!  Amber included a photo collage of her son wearing a Cat in the Hat hat along with the invitation, all packaged together in a red box with crinkly blue stuffing to represent Thing 1 and Thing 2.  So cute!
