Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Last week, to show my support for the ladies over at Southern Weddings, (so excited about their new issue coming in November!) I entered this fun little contest!  The rules: Create an I Love SW photo showing your style – no Photoshop allowed!  Steph, had the fab idea of creating little cards to be hung on a tree branch right outside our studio door.  I went to work featuring all eight of our signature Vintage patterns on each card complete with hand-painted stokes of scarlett ink.  I tied each card with vintage fabrics and hung them from a lovely, yet […]
