Melanie Burk, I designed this invitation in Adobe Illustrator, which I now know how to use, thanks to Alma Loveland. I cannot believe I am just now discovering the world of AI. Is it too dramatic to say that it's changed my life?
So, with Alma and Melanie's voices ringing in my head, I designed this invitation as my final project for my Typography class. For a really small group, I was able to customize them with personalized gift tags, twine and address labels. Oh, the joy of doing just six invitations for six really special girls!
card stock; kraft address labels cut from Paper Source adhesive label sheets. All were done with a good old fashioned ruler, paper cutter and scissors. I stamped a white circle over the hole punch using an eraser from a trusty No. 2.
You'll notice there are some creases in the kraft labels in the picture above; they came from a quick fold over so I could cut symmetrical angles. Once I removed the backing and stuck them to the envelopes, I was able to flatten the seams.
red square envelopes. Hand lettering on tags and labels by yours truly, with a white gelly roll pen.
gift tags. More goodness to come!
