I spotted this beautiful first birthday invitation and certificate on Pinterest yesterday in Inspired Bride’s collection. This suite was created by the husband and wife team of Duet letterpress for their adorable daughter, Emily. What a lucky girl!

The invitation is letterpressed on the smaller pink card and details from the 1st year are included in the certificate. Both were bundled up with baker’s twine along with a picture of the birthday girl in a small glassine envelope.

I think the certificate is such a sweet way of celebrating all those simple moments and big milestones with your friends and family. See more pictures and find out the details about the printing here.

Undoubtedly, many of you have already seen these beautiful wedding invitations on Snippet & Ink and Oh So Beatiful Paper but in case you hadn’t I thought I share. Kathryn of Snippet & Ink was married this last December in San Francisco and her wedding was absolutely stunning! Every detail was executed brilliantly all while having that casual laid back sophistication – much like Kathryn herself.

I literally gasped when I saw her entire wedding suite! The subtle grey type on white paper with the bold pops of red are breathtaking! My favorite detail is the hand-edged red on the invitation and reception card along with the red hand-boardered envelopes. Oh and the bride and groom – AH-DORBS! Be sure to check out the rest of this lovely suite here and see more details of Kathryn and Ryan’s enchanting wedding here, here and here!

I’m signing off early this week friends but I’ll see you all back here Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

 



New Save The Dates In The Shop!

Monday, April 11th, 2011

I’ve been working on a new addition to the Etsy shop recently and I’m thrilled to be able to share with all of you! I wanted to create a unique Save The Date card based off of a matchbook. The covers are letterpressed in gold metallic ink onto light blue, pink or green stock. Inside, are custom magnets that are perforated at the bottom so they can be torn off and saved on a refrigerator.

I am so excited with how these turned out and have definitely been inspired by lace and spring colors! You can check out the new Save The Dates here – hope you like them!

I’ve been trying to think of a new section to add to Twig & Thistle to keep things exciting and fresh here. The latest “Well Branded” series, where I highlight some of my favorite brands and identities, seems to be a big hit so I thought I’d try a new series called “Well Sent”. Well Sent will feature invitations, announcements and general correspondence in an attempt to celebrate one of our oldest forms of communication.

Our inaugural feature goes to this lovely wedding invitation for Christina and Bryan letterpressed and designed by Rabe + Company. Inspired by the wedding location, an old factory, and a few of the couples favorite restaurants, the invitation picks up some distinctive details.

I love the mix of bold type paired with classic filigree. The format is completely unexpected and modern for a wedding invite all while celebrating a times past.
