December 25, 2011 § Leave a Comment
Merry Christmas everyone!
You may already be stuffed with Turkey (or your choice of delicious Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus protein), but I hope you’ve left room for some eye candy!
I couldn’t do a round-up of my favourite Hip Ink invitations of 2011 without including and invitation I designed for a beautiful “Woodland Wonderland” styled shoot with Corina V. Photography and Eph*ra Event Design. We were thrilled to have this shoot featured on Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake and Wedding Chicks (WC actually featured secondary looks from this shoot, including a variant of this same invitation in pink, white and grey with Spanish Moss).
The inspiration behind the shoot was an elegant and whimsical woodland setting with a dash of rustic charm, and the shoot featured everything from berries and feathers to mushrooms and frogs – so much fun! The idea behind this particular design was to find a way to incorporate both elegance and whimsy along with more earthy rustic elements.
The wood invitation card was die cut and used a whimsical typeface with a hand-lettered feel, and it was nestled on a bed of real moss in a chocolate brown silk box. The silk box was tied with a grass-green ribbon and featured three handmade layered wood-veneer flowers. The insert cards continued the theme, adding a rabbit and a bird to the mix as well!
It was such a pleasure to participate in this amazing shoot with such talented vendors and it’s always fun to be your own client and let you imagination run wild
