This custom invitation suite was loosely based off of another invitation suite I had done about a year ago with the Japanese wrap and layered invitation card mounted on a 5x7 card, which gives a beautiful 1/4" border and adds depth. Some of the brides for whom I design and print choose something they like based off of something they've seen in my custom collection and modify it to suit their taste, which is what we did here. Kari loved the idea of a wrap around the invitation and mounting it onto a colored card, so we based this suite off of that. She drew the beautiful flowers that we used on both the invitation and the rsvp postcard. I scanned it in, imported it into Illustrator and then converted into vector art so that it would print best. Also, once something is in vector format it can easily be resized larger or smaller without losing quality.
For the rsvp postcard, Kari also drew the large rsvp wording and again I scanned it in the same way I did the flowers. What's great about this set is that by using her artistic talents we were able to really create something personal. Plus isn't it kind of fun to say, "Hey, I drew that!" for your own invitations?
