Absolutely NO pink

Just to prove I can work with other colours ;)

This is one of 50 wedding invitations I made for one of my husband's colleagues. The wedding will be held in the country, so besides the invitation they had to include a map, a list of suggested accomodation as well as the gift registry cards.

I thought a square invitation would be good, with all the contents in a matchbook style cover. The couple loved the idea, and they made me nervous by giving me absolute carte blanche with regards to design. They didn't even suggest a colour - they left it all up to me. If everyone was this easy to deal with, I'd probably do more paid work!
They were thrilled with the end product - Jason said "WOW - they look like they have been printed!" That's a real compliment - way ahead of "yeah - these look handmade."
The best bit about doing wedding invitations is that you get to see the guest list before anyone else hee hee!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me some love!
