Let me tell you a little bit about Innocence – by far my most popular design to date.
The idea for this beautiful design first began some 4 or more years ago. I have been known for a long time by the simplicity of my designs and although there are various different elements to this design – it really is so simple but the attention to detail draws you to the beaded wings of this gorgeous creature straight away.
I met with a lovely bride–to–be called Emma who also happened to work at a venue where she had already seen for herself the quality of my work. She was keen to see more examples up close, having been extremely disappointed with other samples she had already obtained. Not to mention that she had noticed as soon as you say ‘butterfly’, all too often the same punched out shape would appear – taking away from the unique nature of her wedding (who wants to feel as though you are doing the same as everyone else?)
We looked at some ideas together, and using a similar design layout to the Devotion wedding invitation card we worked out how we could easily bring something a bit more exciting to her stationery designs, add a little sparkle and away we go! The beautiful diecut pocketfold version of this invitation also gives it a gorgeous unique quality.
Emma was absolutely delighted with the finished design (see what my lovely brides think here) and as a design I absolutely love seeing the different colour combinations chosen by my couples when bringing this design to life.
Over the years I have seen it come alive in combinations of white, navy, red, lemon yellow, mint green & silver, assorted pastels, hot pink, lilac, purple and royal blue.
It’s so versatile because even though the butterfly ‘only’ comes in 20 different colours, you can easily combine a more neutral colour with your choice of ribbon (over 142 to choose from!) or for a small upgrade cost you can have the gorgeous sparkling gemstones in a colour too.
The gorgeous sparkle from the preciosa diamantes really does lift the whole design to another beautiful sparkly dimension.
Every single one of these stones is individually placed by hand, by me.
Then secured carefully in place with a special kind of adhesive to ensure there can be no mishaps. These beautiful stones (which can also be upgraded to genuine Swarovski if you so wish) are so super sparkly and really do give this beautiful design the finish it deserves.
Combine all these beautiful things with the lovely premium textures of card available and you find before you an invitation like no other – it feels as expensive as it looks and will easily stand up to years in a memory box without any discolouring or aging too – what a lovely memory of your big day to look back on in years to come, the day you announce to the world that you are going to be Husband and Wife.
As with all my designs you have various options depending on personal preference, and how much you want to spend. This includes layering of the additional inserts on more coloured/coordinating card, premium finish envelopes, it is also available with your RSVP and Guest envelopes pre printed for you.
All of my sparkly designs come complete with the ‘Sparkle Guardian’ to further protect this little beauty in the post.
But if you really want to impress your guests you can have your invitations sent individually boxed for an extra charge.
Now that you’ve read all this you’re probably thinking there is far too much to think about here – truthfully the easiest way to begin deciding any of it is to drop me a line so we can have a friendly chat while we figure it all out.
I love hearing about my couple’s plans for their big day and will gladly buy you a cuppa while you tell me all about it! So why not drop me a line.
I look forward to hearing from you xx
