When my girlfriend Mae and I started discussing design ideas for her wedding invitations, we both fell in love with the idea of a die-cut single paged invitation. Her invitations would be completely custom so we got to work on deciding a shape for the die-cut, patterns, monograms, font, ribbon colours and cardstock.
Mae and Tim (her fiancé) chose charcoal grey metallic card-stock for the base of the invitation and gold metallic card-stock for the die-cut shape. They chose a simple quatre foil pattern in eggplant and it was all topped off with matching grosgrain ribbon with a diamond buckle slider.
Any custom work is a bit of a process for both parties, I value my customers input and ask for their opinion right down to the size of the font. Simple details like matte vs. metallic cardstock and satin vs. grosgrain ribbon make a huge difference. One of my favourite aspects of graphic design is comparing the first mockup to the final assembled design and Mae’s finished invitation exceeded my expectations by far! The bride-to-be loved the invitations and I am so happy to be able to help in any way to make her big day special!!
