Happy Birthday! Three Custom Birthday Cards

I'm a little behind on todays post, due to finishing up the cards above! I wanted to share them with you before I packaged them up and shipped them off to their new (interim) owner! I hope that the people she commissioned these cards for loves them! They were fun to paint, and the client gave me great ideas for what she wanted.  


If you are interested in any custom work, cards or otherwise, send me quick note HERE! I'd love to make something for you!

A Rustic Garden Wedding Invite Suite for Olivia and David

I had the pleasure this summer to make the wedding invitations for an old friend, Olivia, and her now husband, David.  Olivia was a stunning bride, and was so easy to work with.  She sent me an inspiration photo of a bouquet she found on the internet, which she used to build her whole colour palette and overall feel of the wedding around.  Filled with soft peach and pinks, and ethereal leafy greens.  I used this bouquet inspiration to create some delicate watercolour flowers on her invitation, as well as adding a lantern on the RSVP card.  She had used lanterns as part of her centrepieces, so it tied everything together nicely.  I used a simple and clean hand lettered script for invite, as well as hand drawn map of the ceremony and reception locations.  The bride hand lettered the envelopes herself, in her own writing, which I think complimented the work that I did well.

I'm super thankful to my sister, Ali Happer, of The Entrance Collective.  She made sure to capture a quick shot of the invite suite for me on the wedding day.  Below are some more shots of the wedding that The Entrance Collective captured. 

Thank you to Emily Herron, of Love Emily Herron, for the invite suite photo styling!
