Laura + Doug’s Vintage Floral Wedding Invitations

Chartreuse Vintage Floral Wedding Invitations

Designer Krista McCormick sent over these gorgeous green wedding invitations that she created for Laura and Doug, and the lovely shades of green and chartreuse that run through the suite and detail pieces were a perfect fit for the couple’s vintage-inspired outdoor wedding. Ornate floral illustrations, with the wedding date cleverly embedded within, and an upscale script font contribute to the fresh, elegant feel of the entire suite. Printing was done by Inviteink.

Quirky Travel Themed Wedding Invitations

Quirky Travel Themed Wedding Invitations

Ooh, I cannot get enough of the awesome travel-themed wedding invitations. I spotted this chic, modern wedding suite by Kathleen Shannon over at Design Crush, and it was squee at first sight. The couple, Vanessa and George, met while working for the State Department in Iraq, and they love traveling, maps, Wes Anderson movies, and giant squids. Giant squids, you say? I have to agree, giant squids are pretty awesome. The couple also wanted to include pi, as well as Par Avion written in Persian, somewhere in the suite. This couple is so cool.

Kathleen used Anderson’s The Life Aquatic as inspiration for the suite and brought all of the couple’s fun and quirky element ideas together to create pieces that are simply irresistible, with luggage tag RSVP cards, airmail themed save the dates (featuring the aforementioned Par Avion in Persian), and an invitation that includes nautical elements and a hint of a giant squid.

Cute Holiday Party Invitations from Tiny Prints

I have a soft spot in my heart for super cute illustrations and bright, festive color, and this soft spot grows three sizes every year at the holidays because of all of the adorable gift wrap, greeting cards, and invitations that come out to play in November and December. Tiny Prints has a bunch of cute holiday party invitations this year that would be wonderful for holiday shindigs, neighborly get togethers, and cookie exchanges, and these are just a few of my favorites. Well, actually, it’s eight favorites, but eight is a few when you’re paper obsessed.

Mid-Century Modern Moving Announcements

Mid Century Modern Moving Announcements

Freelance graphic designer, Kristina Walton, of Studio 67 Designs recently made a big move from Dallas to Chicago, and she designed these mid-century awesome moving announcements to send to her clients. The sunshine yellow and black color scheme really packs a punch and reminds me of the ubiquitous city cab, and do I even have to tell you that I’m loving all of the mid-century graphic elements, including that yummy, argyle-patterned slab-serif font?

Tropical Wedding Invitations by Sweet Olive Press

Tropical Letterpress Wedding Invites

I was recently introduced to the work of Sweet Olive Press, whose Gingerbread Snow Globe letterpress holiday cards instantly became one of my favorites of the season, and their custom wedding invitation portfolio is filled with gorgeousness, too.

These tropical letterpress wedding invites, created for Brooke and John’s intimate Hawaiian wedding, feature an unexpectedly subtle burnt orange, cream, and copper color scheme and beautiful letterpress scrollwork elements against modern typography. I love the understated hibiscus flower illustrations, which were letterpressed in cream colored ink for a look that’s both understated and elegant.  And one of my favorite elements has to be the shimmery copper letterpress printed envelopes, which bring a bit of sparkle and fun to this sophisticated suite.

Pink + Yellow Footprints Baby Shower Invites

Yellow Pink Footprints Baby Shower Invitations

Yellow Pink Footprints Baby Shower Invitations

I love the hot pink and yellow color scheme and super cute baby footprint pattern on these custom baby shower invitations by Laura Macchia. Laura’s client was taken with the Laura’s Heart Love Greeting Card, which became the jumping off point for the custom design, and the little baby footprint pattern was born. The yellow was inspired by the color of the baby’s nursery, and Laura added a touch of bright pink to contrast and to add a bit of a girly feel.

This will be my last post before the Thanksgiving holiday, and I want to wish all of you who celebrate a Happy Turkey Day! Thanks so much for dropping by Invitation Crush, and I’ll see you back here on Monday!
