Our invitation suite is just as mix-and-match as I'd hoped it'd be, utilizing red, cornflower blue, navy blue, and white with a variety of patterns: dots, swirls (that happen to look quite a bit like waves at a certain scale), and folk art flowers. Each of the patterns is woven in equal measure throughout the suite. Stay tuned for more!
Our guests' first view when they open their mailbox? A "firecracker red" envelope with a blue and white mailing label. Here's what ABCD herself has to say about it:
"We “elected” *winkwink* to do computer calligraphy on wrap around sticker-backed mailing labels. The design straddles the edge of the envelope. The return address on the back and the delivery address is on the front with the postage stamp. This is a fabulous way to utilize dark colored mailing envelopes. Not only that, it adds another layer of interest to the entire suite. At first glimpse, it says “F-U-N!” "See for yourself! (click for larger view... and that's not our real address, btw... Amy's good like that)
Let's see what the front of the envelope looks like with our postage, why don't we?
Ahhhh!!!! I want them in my hands NOW!
