I had so much fun working on this bespoke wedding invitation suite for a couple who contacted me about designing their stationery. Wedding stationery is a business that I've always wanted to delve into, so with a resounding yes and a few conversations about what they were looking for, I created the following design:
The brief was to illustrate the date of the wedding in a heart shape for one invite, and then two invitations for the guest's info within an illustrated border. The watercolour painting was done by hand with a lovely spring time colour palette, and hand brush-lettering for the date. Scanned into Photoshop, I adjusted the levels to make the colours extra vibrant and clear, and I artworked the guest info on the bordered invitations.
I used Printed.com (as I do with my greeting cards) to print the invitations on their gorgeous nettuno stock. The paper is textured so it's lovely to touch without interfering with the finish of the illustrations. I also ordered the A5 envelopes to match.
I thoroughly enjoyed working on this commission, not only because creating the artwork and designs is so much fun, but to contribute to a couple's special day is really cool! I hope to design a range of customisable designs for my online shop, as well as working on more bespoke, one-of-a-kind commissioned suites.

I've had fun whipping up a couple of lovey dovey card designs this week. With V-Day fast approaching, why not order a small, hand made and unique card?
I've made a couple of cards with a cute message on the front - 'Your Face is Wonderful' and a firm favourite from my followers - 'I Really, Really, Really Like You.'
I've also designed a few cards you can personalise with a hand written name of your S.O!
All my cards are available to order on my shop here.
Get your orders in soon if you want your personalised card by Valentine's Day! If not, they also make great anniversary or birthday cards too!
