Laura from Duncan Park Papers recently had the great honor of designing wedding invitations for one of her best friends. No pressure, right?! Laura incorporated mint green and yellow into a modern-meets-rustic wedding invitation suite, complete with a soft ikat pattern and digitally printed white ink on kraft paper. Pretty!
From Laura: Meg and I have been friends since the first grade, and I had the pleasure of witnessing her love story with Kyle unfold during our frequent visits to each others’ nearby colleges. Needless to say, I couldn’t have been happier when he proposed – and I was beyond honored when she asked me to design their wedding invitations.
Meg and Kyle knew they wanted to incorporate their colors of mint and yellow, as well as include a few rustic elements and touches of chevron. I created a simple monogram and a loose ikat chevron pattern as the key design elements, and combined them with casually elegant typefaces and a variety of papers.
The invitations and reply postcards were digitally printed on lovely 100% cotton cardstock. For the information cards we used digitally printed white ink on kraft cardstock to bring a rustic touch to the invitation suite. Gold and white twine with a mint monogram tag secured the pieces and the suite was carefully tucked into matching mint envelopes. I love how this project turned out, and enjoyed trying out a new-to-me printing technique with the white ink on kraft.
