Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
I was compelled to continue with the Liancarlo inspiration from last week. I can’t get enough of the encrusted detail bodice! I am so drawn to the sparkle and texture. I decided to try my hand at a stationery inspiration board ( big thanks to Kathryn from Snippet and Ink for her daily gems). So many of my clients work with me very early on in the planning process. The custom samples I create for them become their own inspiration palette. Very often my samples find their way to florists, caterers and beyond as each bride orchestrates the many details that craft her perfect wedding!
This week The Vintage Stamped Tree is the focus. The lacy pattern mimics the lush boughs of a tree. I hand-painted each bloom with sheer shimmer ink for a glistening effect. You can almost hear the wind rustle through the leaves. A sleek band and hand-stamped tag finish this luxurious look. A combination of linen and shimmer texture stocks gives a dimensional feel overall. Initials “carved” into the tree are a small but personality packed detail that I just adore.
