A Beachy Invite...

What I love most about these invites is the unique use of "beachy" colors. Cameo Coral (retired), Old Olive, and Basic Grey (retired) all combine so beautifully in this card. Jennifer, the bride, did such a good (and very thorough) job researching unique color combinations that weren't "typical." Don't you think? The SU Color Coach certainly came in handy here! This palette remind me of seashells, seaweed and sand. Jennifer also opted for the square shape...though they cost a little more to ship...they certainly stand out! We added a subtle textural element with the clear heat embossed peony (after two-step stamping it) which shimmered ever so slightly in the light and also gave guests something smooth to touch. The multiple layers, the belly band and the 1/8" border all add the elegance of this invite. They were the perfect introduction to a perfect beach wedding...Enjoy!
