Here is my final version of one of my most luxurious invitation made to date! The pocketfold is a metallic cream coloured 7x7". I've wrapped a chocolate brown detailed ribbon with some natural raffia around the pocketfold and attached two foam plumerias for the front. On the inside flap, a rectangle monogram is tied through the raffia along the ribbon. The invitation features a thailand designed header and mandala details with little hits of olive green. A few plumerias were added on the invitation and response card. The invitation was adhered to chocolate coloured cardstock and then a cream puff coloured cardstock which was adhered to the pocketfold. The insert accommodation card has two palm trees along with the mandalas and was adhered to olive green cardstock. The response card was adhered to the cream puff cardstock. I also die cut two palm tree leaves and attached them to the invitation with natural jute cord. This design is a wonderful classy tropical destination wedding suite.
My customer had this to say when the box arrived: "Hi Sandra ... Yippee I got the box ... I called Alyssa and Ryan and they came right over .... And she opened the box for the big reveal .... I wanted her to be here. We all just sat speechless with our jaw dropped ... They are spectacular, original, creative, beautifully done, and exquisite. I can't imagine receiving an invitation as beautiful as this. I got the labels today too and the envelopes. And they go perfectly. Thank you for working with Cari and agreeing to use her large square 7x7" card ... ( I really wanted them ..... ). Even the tissue paper is cut and the color is perfect so when I put them in the box they are so pretty ... Thank you thank you thank you. Your note was sooo kind. I'd imagine that this is indeed the most exquisite destination invitation you have ever done because this is one of a kind, over the top gorgeous and you did it! A movie star celebrity would use these. Thank you very much for working with me and for your patience as I know I am such a darn perfectionist!!! And then to have to change the date. Omg ........ Thank you for getting them out to me. They will be mailed ASAP. Thank you ... Love Lee, Alyssa and Ryan"
I also designed a program and a fun tiki card stand for the bride and groom (tiki stand shown but without final bride and groom phrase). My customer upon receiving the programs said: "they are just to die for... May be your finest work.... Love love love... Them.... Thank you soooo much. I'm thrilled. Now you go have a great holiday. I'll miss you... I feel like we are friends. Since last February. Everything is perfect. They are prize winning... Much love and appreciation... Lee
