French-Country versus Classy Country Club

We made a couple of deliveries last week and they are our new favorites. We have to restrain ourselves from sharing too much as these are soon-to-be on their way to their guests. We hope they will appreciate them as much as we had in designing them.

We absolutely adored Jamie's inspirations for a romantic French-country vineyard wedding invitation. Soft, rustic, ironwork/gates, flourishes, monogram, french-country, romantic, vintage, shabby chic are some of the descriptions Jamie dropped on us at our first meeting. And we couldn't wait to get started. We are also so excited because this set was letterpressed! We can't stop running our fingers over the feel of crisp and deep impressions on fluffy cotton paper. These are letterpressed on 300 gsm Crane's Lettra cardstock in slate blue and chocolate brown.

This next set is a bold and striking contrast to the soft and romantic. Who knew pairing royal purple and black would make such a statement?! Jennifer came to us knowing she wanted to incorporate a flourish motif on her wedding invitations. We had the perfect one and paired it with a calligraphic cartouch monogram for a classy country club affair.
