Lisa & Matthew : Wedding Invitations


Lisa wanted a striking black and white invitation design. She was initially drawn to an invitation in my portfolio that had a scroll graphic element, but mentioned she really liked damask patterns. After a few damask proofs and so-so reactions, I sent this elegant scroll pattern and Lisa was thrilled with the design!


Her panel invitations were printed on a gorgeous soft white shimmer cardstock, and mounted on a metallic black cardstock. The paper is so nice and substantial, and the black backing layer really makes the design pop.



The invitation was packaged in a black envelope with a wrap-around address label and custom monogram stamp. Wraps were also created to hold the inserts together and personlaized with guest names - an alternative to an inner guest envelope.


A reception card, directions card with a location map, response card and envelope were assembled within the wrap.




The response envelope featured an oval scroll frame, and I designed this black response stamp for some additional color contrast within the inserts bundle.
