Save the Date: Elyssa & Justin are Getting Married!

Back in late June I finished this lovely set of Save-the-Date cards for a Seattle couple, Elyssa and Justin, who are planning a destination wedding for this winter in Key West, Florida.  Elyssa had seen my Elegant Scroll Thank You cards on etsy, loved the pattern, and wanted to know if I could incorporate it into a design for their wedding stationery.  The first piece we worked on together was her Save-the-Date, which you can see pictured above.  Elyssa & Justin's Save-the-Date is an A2 size (4.25"x5.5") card and was printed in violet ink on Crane Lettra 100% cotton pearl white paper.  We tried out several different fonts when working on this design, and I absolutely love the ones Elyssa decided on.  They're really pretty and really stand out!

We paired Elyssa & Justin's Save-the-Date card with a coordinating purple envelope from Waste Not Paper Company and printed their return address on it in silver ink.  I love the way that the metallic silver for the address shimmers in different amounts of sunlight.  It's subtle, yet really elegant.  Here is a photo of the Save-the-Date card and envelope together and a close-up of just the metallic silver return address.  

I'm actually going to be finishing up the printing on the rest of Elyssa & Justin's invitation suite today, so if you love the way these Save-the-Date cards turned out, check this blog again soon to see their invitation, reply card and the other pieces in their suite.
