These invitations from Kate at Ruby & Willow are so much fun – the perfect way to start a new week! Kate combined the color green with kraft paper for an organic, yet modern, design. I love the striped RSVP card and the surprise bunting in the save the date. Such a wonderful and unique element!
From Kate: Kate & Steve wanted to incorporate kraft cardstock and twine – two very popular trends right now – and the colour green. The overall look they were going for was something a little rustic and organic with an element of ‘fun.’ I designed a mini pull out bunting for the save the date invitation that went inside a mini envelope, which also had some accommodation details.
The invitation itself featured a mixture of modern typography with a fun graphic logo, and contrasted with the diagonal stripes featured on the rsvp card. For the day of stationery, a program booklet was printed on kraft paper featuring the same pattern used through out the invitation suite.
Thanks Kate! You can check out more from Ruby & Willow right here!

This week on Oh So Beautiful Paper:
Ashley at Fine Day Press created these beautiful prints to commemorate the legalization of same sex marriage in her home state of New York. Both editions are 8×10″ prints of an original watercolor illustration, printed on luxuriously thick, textured, bright white paper with archival inks. Ashley plans to donate 10% of proceeds to the Human Rights Campaign in the hopes that gay marriage will soon become legal through the entire country.
Thanks Ashley! These prints are available at Fine Day Press

I’m absolutely in love with these astronomy prints from Agent Gallery Chicago. I love the moody contrast of the black and white charts, and each chart brings out my inner astronomy geek. I think the constellation and moon charts are my favorite – so pretty!
