Watercolor baby shower invitations with platinum foil accents

Thanks to the help of our friends at the Papery of Philadelphia, we were able to create these darling watercolor baby shower invitations for Megan. Our Vista design has never looked sweeter with the addition of little star motifs and a die-cut shape added to create a more youthful feel. The wording popped off the page in our Platinum Shine foil with a soft, subtle watercolor background behind it. With a nod to Doctor Seuss written across the top of the page and a map of the world as the envelope liner, it’s easy to see that everyone wishes a big, bright future for this little boy to come!

Modern watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations

Natasha and Jordan reimagined our Vista design with the help our friends at Needle in a Haystack. These watercolor rehearsal dinner invitations were a modern nod towards their South Carolina Aquarium venue. They opted for contemporary fonts that have never looked better while dressed up in our Silver Shine foil; all paired against a navy wash background. Our Dixon pattern as the envelope liner printed in Slate and Sky was the perfect compliment to this subtly aquatic set.

Pastel Bat Mitzvah invitations

We completely transformed our Vista design to create Rachel’s pastel Bat Mitzvah invitations. An ever-so-subtle wash of digitally printed sea mist ink gave a soft, ocean-like look to the main invitations, while gold matte foil highlighted Rachel’s name and gave a glowing effect to the tiny stars sprinkled throughout the design. A striped watercolor envelope liner featured a gradient effect starting with varying shades of blue at the bottom and transitioning to the palest shade of purple at the top.
