Giada + Davide’s Kraft Paper and Lace Wedding Invitations

As much as I love bright pops of color, I’m just as easily blown away by a beautiful wedding invitation suite done all in soft and natural colors.  Valentina from Cut and Paste created these beautiful invitations for a recent wedding in Friuli, Italy, combining kraft paper, lace, and even lasercut wood into the wedding invitations and day-of stationery!

From Valentina:  Giada and Davide wanted a soft boho style wedding with lots of little flags and banners.  I created an invitation suite with a natural color palette, incorporating lace, kraft paper, and wood.  The kraft paper invitations were screen printed in white ink with a lace overlay at the top, then paired with white envelopes and kraft paper wrap-around address labels.

For favors, we printed copies of Giada and Davide’s favorite biscuit recipe on kraft paper and bound them to small jars of cinnamon.


Lasercut wooden flags served as table numbers, while laser engraved clothespins functioned as place cards.


Thanks Valentina!

Shabby Chic Linen Save the Dates

I’m a big fan of invitations that involve fabric, so I was thrilled when Valentina from CUTandPASTE sent over these linen Shabby Chic-inspired save the dates that she designed for a wedding later this spring.

From Valentina: The couple desired something with a vintage-shabby style so I’ve created this multi-layered, crafty, and natural save the date composed by a small tag with their monogram, a custom hand-stamped linen fabric, and a warm white save the date enclosure – all sewed together.  The warm white and light brown color palette represents the couple’s soft and gentle style.
