I had just the thing.
There is a letterpress technique called "blind" letterpress that I'd benn dying to try out, this was the perfect opportunity.
We came up with a graphic that emobied the holiday (fireworks) and then letterpressed it into the paper without ink, hence the "blind" part, get it?
We used 220# 100% cotton paper (for those of you who aren't paper geeks like me, that means THICK) and the impression just popped of the page.
It was simple, understated and just lovely:
It's always fun to create something "new" and once again, the bride was just such a joy to work with.
Thanks Laura for letting me help you design your invitations!
