Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Just a quick peek at programs for Ali!  Ali has been with us since save the dates and is quite possibly the most decisive bride we’ve known!  Her look stayed focused and clean from day one.  There is definitely something to be said for a tiny bit of tunnel vision in wedding planning.  With so much inspiration out there it can become difficult to stay focused on your instincts.  When you do, like Ali, the results can be breathtaking!!  Have a look at how Ali’s design processed unfolded here and enjoy some close-up views of her pretty tri-fold painted programs!

Day two of our Tim Burton Inspired wedding and it is all about the details!  Dorian from Central Park Flowers in Olyphant, PA knocked it out of the park, sorry to be cheesy but no other way to say it.  Sprightly mosses, crimson roses and orchids galore all sculpted together in topsy-turvy elegance took my breath away.   Jessica’s invitations were a wow statement in color.  A hand illustrated Tim Burton style tree in silhouette was accented with our Lacy Leaves pattern all hand painted in purples.   Envelopments Mod pattern, oh yeah.   Big hugs to Jessica for being […]

Monday was a lovely day.  In addition to meeting all our Envelopments friends in person at The National Stationery show we received some very cool news x2!!  Two of our favorite weddings were featured in one day, the first of which I am sharing with you today!!  Jessica and Andrew came to us with two simple requests; to be creative and to get inspired by the one and only Tim Burton!  The scene was set at the intimate Bischwind Bed & Breakfast with Daniel Lanton getting lost in every juicy detail that Dorian and I created! Crimson roses, Picasso Callas, […]

Another look today at the custom menus, place cards and table number cards created for the La Tavola Linen Grand Opening in Newport Beach, CA!  We adore this black, white and pink combination and especially dig the lacquered succulents.  An iconic gerbera daisy was the artwork centerpiece here along with Envelopments black and white paisley cardstock… The floral design drove the drama of this table with its fluffy green hydrangea, creamy ivory roses and purple ranunculus.  Our vintage garden artwork seemed the perfect fit on dusty purple cardstock with creamy ivory hand painting… My friends at La Tavola Linen are […]

Nothing gets me more excited about painting than peonies.  Their lush petals and bulbous shape seem made in heaven for an artist’s brush.  When Michael gave us design direction for her save the date to include WOW factor, peonies, gold and pink plus an Old Hollywood vibe, I knew instantly what to create.  I’ve always dreamed of painting ribbons.  My time  had come.  Michael’s design began with a Venetian Mirror illustration.  A broad tipped pen elicited a stylized sketch of a classic frame style with etched leaves and texture.  Our signature sketched peonies were tucked into the bottom corners of […]
