Haydens 30th Birthday Invitations
Im slowing making my way through my list of things to achieve before we can get on a plane and fly far away - one of these was Birthday invitations to my Husbands 30th Birthday which we are holding at an art deco inspired wine bar once we return.
The invites needed to feel classic, art deco inspired with a touch of masculinity suitable for a male birthday. I illustrated a subtle art deco pattern which was blind debossed into the paper and used to create a gorgeous tactile feel to our 100% cotton paper.
After printing with deep charcoal ink, we then used our gold dusting technique to create a slightly sparkly but ever so classy gold invitation names.
After lining the envelopes with my favourite Florence Broadhurst Japanese Fans, the invitations are now addressed and ready for the mail!
