This invitation was designed with the 1920s or 30s in mind, for a bride having a reception at an art deco themed restaurant in Chicago. The illustration is the Chicago skyline (which could be customized with any city skyline or other silhouette) and I printed these on Lemon Drop Pop-Tone paper from French Paper.
It’s my first time doing an invitation on a brightly colored paper, and I’m hooked! It’s a great way to add color to a one-ink invitation.
Is it pigeon-holing to pair these invitations with inspiration boards? This board was fun to make, but of course I think this invitation could go a few different routes and would look very classy on an ivory paper, too. Once I started looking for images, I realized there were about 3 different weddings I wanted to create for this invitation! For this set I picked vintage-inspired, “old Hollywood glam” images and a black, white, and yellow theme.
