variations...


it's fun to revisit the same design, changing color, typefaces and adding little details. here are different variations i have created recently, based on three originals.

custom variation of "patton" in tones of white, charcoal and raspberry. digitally printed, with painted gold berries and paired with charcoal envelopes.




variation of "lucca", letterpressed, with precise lettering for marchesa and dotted fabric envelopes for the baby's photo.





variation of "libby", kept as a flat card and sized up to A6. they are letterpress printed on gorgeous italian arturo paper. then paired with thank you notes and envelopes with simple stitching details.

finished!

lovely baptism invitations, printed on vintage handkerchiefs.
with a hand sewn silk thread cross and pearl button closure...
each invitation is wrapped in waxed tissue.

inside the french envelopes each handkerchief is folded to display the detailed pullwork, embroidery and applique.


once unfolded, each handkerchief is lovingly printed with hand calligraphy and illustrated banners announcing the celebration.


a special invitation for a very special event.
