i've been a little absent lately and i could blame it on the never ending rain cloud permanently affixing itself above nyc, or i can show you what's been taking up all of my time. we finally! sent out our wedding invitations, which have been a real labor of love.
we really wanted to do something handmade with a whimsical feeling to it. we wanted it to feel like a little package of goodies, with each piece having a unique attribute - whether it be the paper of the design. i took the idea of the rsvp stickers from birddog press, i just loved them.
and the admit one ticket just has some reminder travel information.
the invitation itself was just a vellum hand sewn onto vintage wallpapers and papers i collected, each one being completely unique. the colors here are a lot brighter than the actual papers, everything is a very muted palette.
and while i would have loved to use vintage stamps, it was just not in our budget to do so given the number of components of the invitations - so we lucked out with the adorable new king and queen love stamps.
