fern wedding invitations & DIY options

Gatsby’s gone green! I love this take on our Gatsby Border wedding invitation — the swirls remind me of fiddle ferns, and it looks great in green. At the bride’s request we used vintage botanical illustrations to create the custom envelope liners. By the way, this bride will be assembling her envelope liners herself — something we’re happy to do for any invitation order. It helps keep the cost down without losing the addition of a bold pattern. Assembly is easy, just takes a little time. Here’s a video I send to brides for DIY envelope liners.

One thing I love about my job is the variety (and, I admit, I love doing most of it myself). I love being in front of the computer, sending emails, making edits for clients, and hopefully finding a few spare minutes to create new designs or products. And then I love heading across the street to a coffee shop to assemble a bunch of envelope liners. I love the days when I’m running around between printers, the mail shop, the fabric store, and back again.

Here’s a peek of a recent invitation project for a bride getting married in the North Carolina mountains. I painted a custom watercolor envelope liner, and kept the cards simple with 1-color letterpress in grey. The blue envelopes (with beautifully screen printed white addresses!) add a pop of color. More images of this suite to come!
