Red, White + Kraft Bridal Shower Invitations

These bridal shower invitations from Sally at la Happy are so pretty they just make me smile.  Sally used the Rainy Day rubber stamp kit from Yellow Owl Workshop to create the umbrella illustration on chipboard on the outside of the invitation, and then hand lettered the bride’s name on in white ink on each invitation before securing the invitation details on the inside using washi tape.  So cute!  I’m also seriously loving the white calligraphy on those bright red envelopes – such a great combination!







Gorgeous!  Thank you so much Sally!  You can also check out more of the awesome stamp kits from Yellow Owl Workshop right here.

Mary + Nathan’s Beautiful Papercut Ketubah

I featured this beautiful Jewish wedding on my DC-area wedding blog, United With Love, last week.  The couple, Mary and Nathan, had a stunning papercut ketubah (Jewish marriage contract) and I couldn’t resist sharing this particular detail here on OSBP.  The design is relatively simple – just white paper and digital calligraphy with the laser cut details, but I actually prefer a simple white ketubah to some of the more colorful options.



I asked Mary and Nathan where they found the ketubah and was expecting to hear that they had worked with a local artist, but it turns out they found it online.  This particular ketubah is called Winter by Ruth Stern Warzecha, but you can check out some of the other designs right here.

Folk Art Cards and Artwork from Urubbu

We often see pretty birds in our Capitol Hill neighborhood; my husband can recognize almost all of them, but the only one I can name by sight is the cardinal.  Yesterday I spotted a pretty little house finch walking home from the grocery store and it reminded me of the beautiful folk-inspired prints and cards from Urubbu.  I first discovered Urubbu at last year’s National Stationery Show and have been a fan ever since.  I love all of the flora and fauna-inspired designs!
