What’s Black, Yellow, and White?

Besides bees and Georgia Tech fans, shower invites come in black, yellow, and white.

Wendy’s Maid of Honor, Janice contacted me about designing Wendy’s Bridal Shower Invites. She had two requests. They were to use damask and the color scheme mentioned above. Here’s what I came up with.

I designed the address and mailing labels using a damask pattern that I bought and manipulated.

Janice thought it would be a great idea to stamp emboss the back of the envelope.

I designed this enclosure and printed the damask pattern on my inkjet printer.
We added a thick grosgrain ribbon to add more texture.

These invites were quite labor-intensive. Thankfully, Janice called for some back-up and we had an assembly party at her house. Special Thanks to Debra, Jordana, and Janice for helping me put these together.
