Wedding Roundup

19 May

A while back, I was offered the opportunity to participate in a wedding expo. This was exciting, however it meant that I spend about four straight days making products, so I would have something to showcase!

It was pretty fun.

Anyway, I have been slowly putting these suites up on Etsy, and I thought I’d share them here.

I like this one because it’s simple and elegant, but still a little modern. I’ve also really been digging blue and yellow together.

Okay, I admit it, I’m a little obsessed with triangles and neon lately. I really just wanted an opportunity to expand on the triangle note cards. I like these because they are die cut, so they have a really great texture and dimensionality. I also really love the idea of a neon wedding, so it would make me super happy if a couple actually wanted these without any color changes.

These would definitely be for a more unconventional couple. I loved making them, though. I’ve been working on some water color type for a while, and it was so fun to pair it with hand drawn type. I found that putting it on a patterned background really tied it together, as it looked a little unfinished before that.

This one is by far my favorite. As none of these were for clients, I didn’t have any kind of printing budget, so I made them on my home printers. I think that there are PLENTY of ways to make beautiful printed pieces without expensive printing methods. I printed this on foil paper using a simple laser printer, and I think the inexpensive printing method really enhanced the piece. It gave it this lovely texture that I don’t know that I could have gotten any other way. The best part is, it cuts down the printing costs somewhat, but it definitely doesn’t look it!

These were so super fun to make, and I can’t wait to help a real couple commemorate their special day.
