Project of the Week: Miranda and Eric


We were quite taken right away with Miranda and her love of our favorite color.  Purple that is ... as if you couldn't tell.  We had just the perfect accessory to make Miranda and Eric's wedding invitation truly pop.  I'm talking our custom made 3" double-faced satin ribbon in plum.  Now I have to admit, I was completely reluctant to let this ribbon go, but I tend to hold on to stuff I love and years later realize I never had the strength to use it on something fabulous (many a great bottle of wine has been lost to this personality fault).  Sarah was not so reluctant, and good thing!

Miranda and Eric also fell in love with a gold and ivory tissue paper which inspired the design on their two-color letterpressed invitations.  We coordinated our metallic gold letterpress ink with a stunning purple custom mixed ink.  The layout was pretty intricate; theirs is definitely an invitation that will take their guests' breath away!  The inivtation piece was mounted on a gold metallic paper which was folded like a book cover with ribbon tucked behind so that when the folded paper closed the bow could be tied around the front.  On the inside, we mounted the reception card and tucked their additional information pieces and the RSVP set into a handmade pocket made from the gold and ivory tissue paper.  The invitation set was packaged in a white mailing box and adorned with custom stamps!
