Friday I finished an order for 300 envelope sets for a local wedding. The Bride and her parents were such a pleasure to work with and I hope that the wedding is everything they imagine. We did a simple copperplate alphabet with black ink on the square envelopes. Check the pictures!

Custom Designed Invites
My little sister moved into her first apartment last weekend and as her housewarming gift I designed fill-in invitations for her parties. She really likes to cook so I thought these would be appropriate for sharing the love.
The first ones were developed using a stamp from PaperNosh on Etsy (I was the first to buy this stamp and now they are selling like hotcakes, get one while they are still in stock!) and then embossed with silver embossing powder from Paper Source. The Calligraphy was done in the Copperplate script with black ink and the flourish was done in silver calligraphy ink. All mounted on a brown card stock.
Next, I did a series of casual invitations that say “Appetizers”, “Cook Out” and “Desserts”. These were done on white card stock (left overs from another project) with black calligraphy in in the citadel script. Casual and fun.
Finally, a tribute to the fact that she is at Texas Tech… I made some football game watching party invitations, in the Red, Black and White. The Gothic script in black ink is lettered on more left over white card stock, mounted on red paper. The dots are with black ink and red gauche. The “join us” is elevated on black card stock and a white gel pen was used for the lettering.
I had fun making these and I think they were very well received on delivery.
Mother’s Day Names and Birthdates
I did a small job for a client who wanted his three sons name and birth date written to be placed on a photo mat below newborn pictures. The mat is midnight blue so we used a light blue paper and midnight blue ink to coordinate a bit. I hope to see a picture of the finished product after Sunday.
