Allie’s Best Card for March 2015

This week we are sharing a Bat Mitzvah invitation designed with typography and texture in mind. This oversized invitation included ceremony, party, reply and direction details, so there was a lot of text! The blend of sans-fonts in varying scale were divided into different sections to keep it organized and easy-to-read. We kept the layout modern to let the texture of the gloss white ink pressed into brushed aluminum paper shine through.

For added details, we backed the piece in pink silk paper and created a matching address labels for the white 5″ x 13″ envelope.

This modern Bat Mitzvah invitation suite was designed with retailer E.A.F Fine Papers in New York City.

Allie’s Best Card for July 2014

This dreamy Bat Mitzvah invitation suite was designed with retailer Proper Notice in East Hills, New York.

We wanted to mix formality with youthful fun, so the main invitation has metallic gold ink printed on hot pink, translucent acrylic.  Coordinating insert cards, thank you notes and envelopes were created in the reverse color way of magenta foil on pale gold, shimmer paper. The swirly thick script combined with a thin, modern body text creates a striking contrast in style and scale.

Thank you to Amanda and her family and of course, Proper Notice for choosing us to create this set for your big day.

Allie’s Best Card for February 2014

We’re feeling in the pink from working on this Bat Mitzvah invitation, ordered through The Party Package in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

For this set, the phrase “The beauty is the details” says it all. We mounted an engraved, dark grey invitation on the front of a thick board, backed it in dark grey paper and then edged it in hot pink ink to match the name. The set was completed with a hot pink heavy weight envelope lined in matching grey paper. The combination of dark grey paper, white clean type and a hot pink script name created a mix of modern elegance and youthful femininity.

It was such a pleasure working on this beauty, until next time!

Allie’s Best Card for January 2014

This month we are sharing two of our recent favorites created with retailer The Write Invite in Dallas, Texas.

We are loving this “happy” photo card. Designed for a very special family, it is an oversized thick board with a modern “happy” foil stamped across the front side, and three photos and family names on the back. Matching aqua foil edges complete the look. You cannot help but feel happy as you pull it out of a large, 5″ x 13″ aqua blue envelope.

Our second card is a white flexible, plastic card with a sweet message, “Wishing you flurries of fun this Holiday Season” printed in aqua blue glitter. We really wanted the design to feel festive for the holidays, so we added extra swirls to a beautiful script greeting. A photo was mounted to the back with a glitter border for some added glitz.

Two great ways to send lots of happy vibes to friends and family! Which one is your favorite?

XOXO, allie
