Allie’s Best Card for October 2014

October’s ABC just screams MYSTERY! Beaux Arts Miami asked us to create an invitation for the 62nd Annual Beaux Arts Ball, the longest running costume ball in Miami, Florida. The ball, benefiting the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami, was themed Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil.

They asked us to design an invitation that was a little bit edgy, but upscale enough for the event, which has a seated dinner, auction, dancing and requests black tie attire (for those not attending in costume).

The invitation was printed on flexible plastic on both sides to create a contrast in texture. Distressed typography matched the rustic look of the leaf and vine details at the top and bottom. The set is complete with an RSVP set and sponsorship inserts printed on a gold shimmer paper. Boo!

Allie’s Best Card for August 2013

Gold has made a big comeback!  Our August ABC demonstrates the sophistication and simplicity of gold and black. We are featuring two similar invitations; the first is Dianna & Walter’s wedding invitation that was ordered through Uptowne Papers in Portland, Oregon. The engaged couple chose this square, black acrylic invitation with an metallic gold ink for their formal Saturday night wedding. The invitation arrived in an antique gold, shimmering envelope to match the text.

Amanda’s Bat Mitzvah set was ordered from Proper Notice in Roslyn Heights, New York. She chose the same materials and colors, but in our oversized, tall size. We added a big monogram at the top and added 2 oversized gold crystals for some youthful bling! Count on large, acrylic invitations to make an impact upon arrival.
