Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
I have been dying to share the news!!! Months ago the lovely Leila emailed me to say that the Editor of Inside Weddings was loving my Shimmering Winter snowflake invitation set. A request for a complete set was made and I went right to work! The snowflake illustration was originally created for a client in Ireland about 2 years ago. The whimsical style and understated feel of the snowflake artwork are the perfect “canvas” for lavish hand-painted details.
I reserved the good part of 2 days in the studio to create this collection. Yes, that is right 2 days. The camera notices everything to say the least so stationery created for photoshoots needs to be nothing short of perfect.
Steph created this gorgeous pattern for borders and envelope liners. The palette was rich and dramatic in shades of aubergine, gold and champagne.
I especially love the textured ivory paper placed just underneath the invitation layer. The hand painting on this wedding invitation is truly the focus. Creamy white acrylic fills each snowflake “petal” while bright shimmering gold ink dots were hand-painted throughout.
The Pocketfold® closure is a simple artwork tag and aubergine cardstock wrap. The snowflakes here are overlapped to give the feeling of falling snowflakes on a cold winter day.
Nothing says elegance (in my opinion) like a wide double faced satin ribbon knot. The ceremony program for this collection, although not featured, was one of my favorites. Shades of white and ivory alone create a clean, winter palette while complimenting the collection’s other warm and dramatic hues.
A huge thank you to Leila at Be Inspired PR and team for truly believing in what we do here at Momental. Also, thank you to The Momental Girls for their unending support and creative input!
