Josh and Jayme came to BB10 Creative for invitations for their destination wedding in Sarasota, Florida. They were going to be married at a small park and have the reception at a nearby marina, so they were looking for something with a beach/marina theme, and using the colors of cranberry red, ivory and silver.
Although the final design for this invitation turned out to be fairly simple, the different layers of textured paper along with the starfish charm really help this invitation to stand out. I used a cranberry cardstock for the backing, then a layer of beachgrass paper, then a layer of silver metallic paper, followed by the invitation card itself, printed on a natural white textured cardstock.
The starfish charm is tied onto a piece of twine and was adhered between the different layers of cardstock. We included a small RSVP postcard and mailed the invitation in a silver metallic envelope.
The silver starfish charm was such a hit on the invitations that all of the women invited to the ceremony ended up putting them on silver chains to use as a necklace to surprise the bride!
A second blog post for this wedding is coming soon – as there was a second invitation sent for the wedding reception back in the couples’ hometown of Duluth, MN.
