Check out these gorgeous and delightfully tropical save-the-date cards I finished this past Monday for a couple in Jacksonville, Florida! Priscilla and David wanted something bright, tropical and cheerful for their Save-the-Date cards that would really set the tone for their upcoming wedding in May. This design features two ink colors: a bright green and orange, two lovely, modern fonts, and a vintage palm tree engraving. The Save-the-Date card was printed on 100% cotton rag Holyoke paper in Antique White and was paired with a custom-lined orange envelope from Waste Not Paper Company.
Check out the Save-the-Date by itself below! This card is an A2 size and I absolutely love Priscilla’s bright color choices and the vintage palm tree engraving that we used. The letterpress impression that was created during the printing process is just stunning as well!
Another absolutely gorgeous aspect of these Save-the-Dates are their envelopes! These envelopes are an A2 orange envelope from Waste Not Paper Company, letterpress printed with the couple’s return address in green ink on the flap. Priscilla then picked out a lovely Japanese Chiyogami paper with a beautiful palm frond pattern in greens, tans, silver and gold and we custom die-cut it into envelope liners and lined her envelopes with it. I think this liner really ties the set together and makes the envelopes coordinate with the save-the-date cards perfectly! Priscilla also hired the lovely Michele Clark of Calligraphy by Michele to calligraph her envelopes as well, and I’m sure that the calligraphy for these (like all of Michele’s work that I’ve seen) is going to be just beautiful.
I’ve had a wonderful time so far working with Priscilla and David and I’m really excited to begin working on their actual invitations in the New Year! Thanks so much Priscilla & David! I’ll be talking to you soon!
