Metallic & Elegant Laser-Cut Invitations

Sometimes it’s about the whole package. Here at Art Paper Scissors, we believe the invitation sets the tone for the entire wedding. Nothing says elegance quite like this custom-designed invitation suite with a striking laser-cut jacket, intricate details and sophisticated colors.

The newlyweds Amanda and Frank chose plenty of eye-catching design elements, from the chic silver and light blue shades, to the elegant fonts, to delicate gems around the border. The invitation fits perfectly in the metallic and damask laser-cut jacket, while the response card and detail booklet are elegantly wrapped with silver ribbon around the back.

Congratulations to Amanda and Frank on their April nuptials! We loved working with them to bring this truly unique suite to life.


Vintage Nautical Wedding Invitations

I can’t tell you how fun it was to design for this couple…and I use the word couple loosely only because I never actually met the very lucky hubby to be, Vinnie. I actually worked really closely with Michele, the bride to be, and her mom, Joanne. It’s such a pleasure to see a bride and her mother share in these once in a lifetime experiences together and let me tell you, they are the nicest people on the planet. Seriously. I just love them!

Initially I met with them to do the save-the-dates and then had the pleasure of designing Michele’s shower invites too! When we started the design process, I knew Tim McLoone’s Supper Club in Asbury Park was their wedding venue and that they wanted to personify the oceanfront venue throughout their designs. After brainstorming, we honed in on a vintage nautical theme with a color palette of bold navy, gray and coral that was carried throughout the entire suite.

Here are the save-the-dates and shower invites:

Now the onto the main event…the invitations.

The invitation was presented on a single pocket enclosure and printed with a gray washed wood plank background. Wrapped around the enclosure was a gray linen fabric and rope ribbon with a distressed silver anchor charm. You may recognize a similar ribbon used on these invites.

Once opened the invitation announcement was designed on the left. A dark navy octopus framed the top of the invitation and a coral graphic framed the bottom. The heaviness of the graphics were balanced by whimsical and simple type faced fonts designed in both navy and coral

The pocket on the right contained the details of the wedding: “Where to Go” (the directions), “Response” (RSVP), and “Where to Stay” (the weekend accommodations). Inscribed on the pocket was a quote near and dear to the couple:

If you know how much I love you, count the waves

Behind the details cards was a bold navy and white striped pattern that allowed the pocket inserts to pop!
