The folks down at Mama’s Sauce are really on a roll lately! Â First they create some seriously cool business cards, and now these awesome wedding invitations. Â Nick from Mama’s Sauce came up with the concept of basing the invitation design around an illustration of the couples’ shoes by Itchy Illustration, then incorporated the design into a horizontal tri-fold layout with a sunny yellow wax seal. Â Love it!
From Nick:Â The couple wanted their printed materials to be a balance of playful & classic. Â When it came time to design the wedding invitations months after our first consultation, Julianneâ€™s love affair with her shoes was still stuck in my mind. Â I quickly sketched a scene of the couple standing side by side with a bright popping yellow, highlighting Jewelâ€™s shoes. Â Not your typical wedding invitation, but typical isnâ€™t what the couple wanted.
I am especially in love with the tri-fold wrap. Â 110# Pearl White Lettra Duplexed to French Paper Lemon Drop, we experimented with a type of die cut that allowed the wrap to fold and expose the yellow paper underneath creating a tri-colored edge. Â A subtle detail that the most aesthetically sensitive recipients will surely appreciate. Â Add a wax seal and the wrap is complete.
A collaboration with our friend & officemate, the talented Brian Boesch ofÂ Itchy Illustration, Julianne & Philâ€™s save the date and wedding suite are amongst our favorites that weâ€™ve designed and printed this year.
Very cool â€“ I love the layered effect with the yellow tri-fold die cut wrap, and of course that wax seal! Â Thank you so much Nick!
