Twin Ravens Press owes a big “Happy Anniversary” to one of the awesome couples we worked with last year, Michelle & Thomas. Michelle & Thomas’ one-year anniversary will be this upcoming Sunday, and since I didn’t get to blog about the invitations we created for their wedding when we did them, I’d love to share them with you now! You can see Michelle & Thomas’ full invitation suite in the photo above. It included an A7 size, matted invitation with inner/outer invitation envelopes, and a 4bar size reply card with corresponding envelope. The invite and reply card were printed in two ink colors: chocolate brown and a pretty, reddish-purple, and the envelopes were printed in one ink color: chocolate brown.
For this invitation we did a two-color variation on our original birds in branches design. Michelle and Thomas’ version featured two little birdies in the branches above the text of their invitation. Most of the design was printed in chocolate brown, but we used our accent color (reddish-purple) to set off their names and the two little birds. We actually matched the purple to the matting that we used to matt each of their invitations, which was Waste Not Paper Company’s “Beet” purple color. In the grouping above you can also see the back flap of Michelle & Thomas’ outer envelopes. We used the same fonts for the envelope addresses as we did for the main pieces in the suite to create a totally matching set.
For their reply cards, we used the same decorative elements and fonts. These were also printed in two colors. Again, the majority of the design was done in brown with just the birds and “Réspondez s’il vous plaît!” accented in purple. This card also came with a matching white envelope from Crane with their address printed on the front of it in chocolate brown ink.
Wasn’t Michelle & Thomas’ invitation suite absolutely gorgeous?!? Even though it’s nearly a year after their wedding, I still needed to share it with you! Congratulations and Happy Anniversary Michelle & Thomas! Thanks again!
