We recently designed some custom wedding invitations for our friends Shona and Craig which turned out so nicely that I thought I’d show them off.
Shona and Craig aren’t stuffy-wedding-nazi types and they wanted something on the modern side that didn’t look like it was too sappy. They definitely didn’t want anything that was ‘stock’ looking either, and coming up with a custom invite was one of the most fun design projects we’ve ever had.
When they mentioned that their ceremony would be in an arboretum, I started playing around with a stylized tree. Note the subtle hearts formed with the branches :)
They picked a beautiful pearl-metallic blue card stock of a nice snappy thickness. Into the laser-cutter it went! (We really like playing with our laser and seeing just how fine a resolution we can push it to).
The end result was this:
The invitation text was printed onto matte-white cardstock with the tree motif repeated inside:
Congrats to Shona and Craig! May your wedded life be blissful and full of unicorn-sappiness! ;)
