Christmas Cards Pt. 3 | The Binghams

I've been trying to send out Christmas cards starting the year my husband and I got married.  So far, so good! :)   I haven't found the files for the first two years but wanted to share the last 3 years with everyone. For 2012 we chose to go with a chalkboard theme.  The card was layered on red metallic cardstock and was enclosed in a coordinating envelope. For 2011 I designed a square card that featured carnival fonts, black and white stripes and reindeer!  I think this is my favorite card of our's so far. It was also layered on red metallic cardstock and was enclosed in a white metallic envelope that also featured black and white striped Washi tape on the black flap to seal it. :)

For 2010, I created a business sized card that was layered on green metallic paper and enclosed in white matte envelopes.  The envelope featured the same frame graphic as the card and featured a black and white pattern.

I hope everyone had a wonderful and joyous holiday season! I can't bel…

Christmas Cards Pt. 2 | Custer, Ballard & Peters Families

Here are more Christmas card designs we got to create for clients during the 2011 and 2012 seasons! The Custer Family decided to go with a one sided flat panel with matching envelope.  The designed featured a green, black, and gold pattern and a custom monogram! The Ballards also decided on a one sided flat panel with coordinating envelope and went with a flourish ornament theme using their wedding pictures with the fun "We're having a very "Married" Christmas!" saying.  Here is a design I created for the Peters' in 2011.  This was a card ornament that included white ribbon for friends and family to hang it with.  This design was enclosed in a white metallic envelope with coordinating addressing.

Christmas Cards Pt. 1 | Sorrell and Shafer Families

We were thrilled when Brittany and Ashley, who are sisters and both past bride's of ours, contacted us to design their Christmas cards this year!  I had designed cards for Brittany last year as well!  Each time I work with these girls, they bring me great inspiration!  This year, Brittany decided on a blue and gray double sided card featuring snowflakes and Ashley decided on a red and green chalkboard cute!  All of our Christmas cards come with coordinating envelopes, addressing, and return addressing as well!
Here are pictures of the 2012 and 2011 designs that we did for the Sorrell Family and the 2012 design we did for the Shafers!  Stay tuned for part 2-4 of Christmas cards that I designed for other amazing clients as well as myself. :)

Andrea + Kevin | Kern County Museum | Bakersfield, CA

Andrea and Kevin planned a beautiful fall wedding to be held at the Kern County Museum here in Bakersfield! It was so much fun planning out the details with Andrea and her mom, Vicki! The color scheme was purple and green which I love and Andrea wanted calla lilies used on her invitations. We came up with quite a few designs for this much fun! A layered flat panel invitation was created that included a coordinating response postcard, details insert, and envelope. Champagne and green metallic papers were used for this design. Ceremony fans, "Here Comes The Bride" sign, reserved table signs, menus, "Bride" and "Groom" chair signs, direction signs, cookie buffet bags, signs, and jar labels, and a guestbook tree sign and tags were all created using the same papers, fonts, and graphics. We also provided the couple with wrought iron Shepard's hooks. Their wedding day turned out amazing! So amazing, in fact, that we'll be featuring…

A Kitchen Affair | Emily's Bridal Shower

Loved getting to design Emily's bridal shower invitations while designing items for her wedding day as well!  She wanted a kitchen themed bridal shower invitation using gray, green, and orange and that is what we did!  We created a fun, pop-art inspired design that was printed on white metallic paper and then layered on metallic cardstock.  The invitation included a coordinating recipe card for guests to fill out and bring with them.  Each invitation was enclosed in a metallic envelope that featured coordinating addressing and return addressing.  I love the little teaspoons that we placed by her name on the return! :)

Eva's Garter Set | Chic Lace and Rhinestones

Eva and Matt were married this fall and on top of designing their wedding invitations, menus, seating chart, and other wedding accessories, Eva wanted us to design her garters as well!
We used white lace, rhinestone brooches, and handmade yellow silk flowers along with some touches of gray cording and feathers. Loved the look of these, and as always, we included one for her to keep and one for her to toss!
