bluebell + daisy

2.16.2011

My first stationery project since we had Maura was this set of double-sided Save the Date cards for Rachel and Jason, who are getting married this summer at a winery in Illinois. When we spoke on the phone for our consultation, Rachel told me about the french country, vintage feel she wanted for their wedding.

Her color palette of blue and yellow already worked perfectly for this. In addition, nothing says french country to me like a mix of patterns, so we used a floral on the front of the card and a stripe on the back.

To get the vintage vibe they wanted, I used a combination of fun fonts and decorative ornaments inspired by old french soap and perfume labels. The border (used on both sides of the card) reminds me of a vintage stamp, and the two graphic frames (outlined in yellow) that contain the important text also help add to the throw-back feel.


Thanks for making my transition back to work after the baby so easy and fun, Rachel!

PS. Blue and yellow is such a beautiful, versatile palette. Click here to see some other wedding invitation sets I've done in this color combo.
