As we were setting up our Stationery Loft here at Spark over the past week, I ran across some of the invitations I designed when we first started doing custom stationery for private clients in Minneapolis. One that stuck out was my very first foray into the delightful world of cherry blossoms. Although the cherry blossom illustrations have evolved some since this first iteration, it was fun to see where they started. These are different than our more recent cherry blossoms, if for no other reason, because we printed this set digitally. They turned out surprisingly well especially with the beautiful Stardream papers we used.
I actually remember this project quite well even though I did this more than four years ago, in large part because the couple was so nice to work with. They had a small beach wedding in Florida that we did a custom announcement for as well, and then these invitations were to their wedding reception at a quaint French restaurant in Minneapolis.
Here are some other details about the project:
Stardream Serpentine for the main invite, reply card and reply envelope, Stardream Ruby for the paper band with a blind embossed cherry blossom trio, Stardream Kunzite for the directions card. It's too bad we can't find extras of the envelopes because we did Serpentine envelopes, cherry blossom patterned liners on Kunzite AND custom string & button closures where the discs had a printed cherry blossom pattern as well.
