My solution this year, was to create a holiday card for each of the girls, personalized with their names. I created a simple snowflake design, with a happy holidays greeting underneath. I also embellished each of the snowflakes with a touch of glitter for some sparkle and texture.

Now to those envelope liners (that you can see behind the fruit tart!). These are so popular nowadays, and give any envelope a little extra kick. Wedding invitations that have a unique and beautiful envelope liner really stand out. For this particular client, she really wanted to use something with red and gold, and I found some gorgeous paper at Paper Source! The paper is called Lokta Baroque Flower Bordeaux, and it's actually handmade from a Lokta plant in Nepal. I spent many hours hand cutting these liners, but the end result was stunning. The gold print on the lokta paper just shines in the light.
You can really see the detail of the paper in the last photo. Not only the vibrant colors, but the texture as well! If you have ideas for a fabulous envelope liner, let me know and I will try and find you the perfect paper.

But, what if you actually go through the aisle and find a cute card? The problem is that sometimes, another wedding guest going to the same wedding would also see that same cute card, so the newlyweds get duplicates of the cute card, which doesn't make it that cute anymore. Trust me, this happens.. for my own wedding, I received duplicates of multiple cards!
The solution: personalized wedding cards! For the past three weddings that I've been to, I've designed cards to give to the newlyweds. It would either contain something that is special to them, or have a wedding related element like a hand drawn wedding cake. For Cathy and Pedro's wedding card, I knew that they liked turtles, so I designed cute a pair of "love" turtles with their names attached, and added some texture by hand glittering sections of both of the turtles.
How cute is this card?? I immediately got a response from Cathy after she received the card saying that she loved it.
If you would like to personalize a wedding card for your friends, just email me at email@example.com! I'll be posting some more cards that I've designed at a later date.
