70 and Sensational

August 17, 2016

Recently, one of my clients in New York asked me to design an invitation for her mother-in-laws 70th Birthday Party.  During our consultation she expressed that she would like to have something with a floral border.  While designing the original invitation, my client found a picture on Pinterest of an invitation that she liked and asked if I could design something similar, so I went about hand drawing a similar border then uploading it into my design software to color.  Foiling is normally done on a printing press with plates made similar to letterpress and actually stamped under high heat and is extremely expensive, especially for a small run.  I had recently came across a DIY foiling technique that I thought that I would try for this project.  It turned out beautifully!  Time intensive, but beautiful!! It is always a pleasure to work with repeat clients to share in a small way the milestones, weddings, births, birthdays and events that are celebrated throughout their lives.  

I chose to print on stock and envelopes from my Envelopments line called PC 100 Kraft.  It was a perfect match. I will also share with you the original design that I created before this final design was chosen.  The “seventy” cake topper, which was a first for me, challenging, but thrilled with how it turned out.
