Erin + David’s Rustic Pink + Burlap Wedding Invitations

Oooh… these burlap wedding invitations from Amanda at The Blue Envelope in southern Indiana are just way too cute.  Of course I love the texture from the burlap and stitching details, but I’m also loving the mason jar save the date, western typography selections, and hand painted details.


From Amanda: One of our most recent brides, Erin, is getting married at Claxton Farms in Weaverville North Carolina.  The couple is getting married in a barn and is keeping everything in their wedding very rustic and down to earth.  Erin is using all different shades of pink as her wedding colors.

At The Blue Envelope we enjoy creating things very different and out of the ordinary. When the bride told us she was going to be using burlap as part of her wedding décor we thought it would be perfect to use in her invitations!  The bride requested something different and unique but still wanted to reflect that sense of elegance to her guests.



The burlap was sewn together and fused with a piece of pellon to give it a stiffer feel, more like a regular piece of cardstock. Each piece was hand sewn and each monogram was hand painted.  We love how these turned out and the different approach to a normal wedding invitation.


So beautiful!  Thank you so much, Amanda, for sharing these invitations with us!

{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Do you all have anything fun planned for this weekend?  I’ve been busy this week making lots of changes to my apartment in preparation for some bigger changes over the next couple of weeks, and my Dad is coming down from New Jersey to help with some of the two-person tasks.  It’s so nice to have him relatively close by, particularly while my husband is overseas, and I’m looking forward to some quality family time.  But in the meantime…


…a few links for your weekend!

This week on Oh So Beautiful Paper:

That’s it for me this week!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday! xoxo

Jennifer + Chris’s Modern Save the Date Booklet

Jennifer from Adori Designs sent over these fun save the date booklets that she created for her own upcoming wedding!  Jennifer’s wedding will take place on the shore, but instead of a traditional beach-inspired colors Jennifer chose a bold and modern color palette of purple and green for her save the dates.


From Jennifer:  I’ve always been obsessed with handmade booklets ever since I took a book binding class in college.  So when it came to my wedding stationery, I knew right away I needed to incorporate some kind of booklet.


We are getting married at the jersey shore but didn’t want to go all out with an expected beach theme.  Instead, I kept it very simple with a minimal graphic pattern and simple use of typography.  Because it is somewhat of a destination wedding, the focus was accommodating our guests as much as possible by including a small map and hotel information.



A magnet was also added and adhered to the last page with removable glue.  I also didn’t want to give away too much of the design in the Save the Date, just a little “sneak peek”.  The grand finale will be the invitation itself which will repeat some of these graphic elements and introduce new ones.  And yes, you guessed it, it will be some kind of book!




Thanks Jennifer!  I can’t wait to see what you do for your wedding invitations!

Modern Copper + Gray Engagement Party Invitations

I have a secret love for anything that sparkles – including glitter!  Elpitha from Print in Cursive sent over these invitations that she recently printed for an upcoming engagement party.  The invitation was letterpress printed in shades of gray to reflect the chilly winter weather in Salt Lake City, and then hand glittered for just a bit of sparkle!


From Elpha: This engagement invitation is greatly influenced by the bride’s sense of style and the subtle color landscape of chilly winter weather.  Magda wanted her invitation to be fun and casual, with a little bit of sparkle.  Each invitation was printed in 4 runs on the press using extra thick cotton Lettra stock and then hand glittered in copper to match the envelope.



Thanks Elpitha!  For more from Print in Cursive, check out her blog right here!
