red velvet invitations

I've been designing custom stationery since 2001, and that includes weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, retirement parties, etc. At the time, I didn't realize I was shaping a career path. I am thankful I'm still doing this because I've always enjoyed creating art. Here is one of my older projects. It's actually a revisit to the original invitation, which I did in 2004. The shapes on the patterned tri-fold jacket are velvet! I love the texture. I mimicked the shapes and incorporated them into the main card and inserts. And the idea of the photo as a layer came from the couple -- I'm a fan of clients sharing their input.
