Branches and Butterflies

Remember the project preview I posted a little while ago? Here is a peek at the announcements I just finished. I had so much fun! The directions I received from the bride were to make a heart out of branches, use the color brown, and she wanted a pocket to hold all the pieces. (Click images to view larger.)

I decided to mimic the shape of the ceremony arch. I also included a few butterflies to foreshadow the planned butterfly release.
The cards are pressed by Tryst Press (they always do a great job)—so gorgeous. I wish you could see them in person. We used ecru Lettra letterpress paper, and the brown pocket is handmade Indian silk paper. The project included a menu, map, place cards, thank you cards, RSVP cards, and matching envelopes as well.

Next up, I'll be handmaking a sign-in book out of the left over paper. So check back later (in a month or so) for more . . .
