Engagement Cards :)

Standard

This past week, I got engaged! Though I didn’t plan the event, I got to pick out decorations, design invitations, arrange for hand designed table numbers, and wrap return gifts. Basically, all the fun stuff!

I drew a motif using my .3 mm Stabilo Pen, converted it into a Vector Image, and used that as the theme for this event. The casual mehendi invite to my immediate family had the image in mehendi-green followed by text. The bridesmaid invite in rich purple (Top Right) included a cheesy poem, and were personalized for each bridesmaid. The engagement e-vite was in a deep maroon (Bottom Left), and the Thank You Cards (Top Left) were in a rustic orange. The maroon and orange matched the decorations at the hall, and those colours were also used for the beautiful number signs for the table decor.

The event was a lot of fun, and it was touching to have family all over the world come to celebrate with us! Stay tuned for several wedding related DIY projects :)

Christmas Card

Standard

This is the start of a very huge series of similar christmas cards, which I will be giving to coworkers for the holiday season :) These cards are actually extremely simple, and pretty small (1/8th the size of an A4 paper).  I’ll probably be putting together one or two dozen of these over the weekend.

I picked up a Gold & Silver pen from Michaels, and used some random red scrap book paper that I had lying around the house (I think it was a bulk package from Costco, but I could be mistaken). Then it was just a matter of putting it together. Goes to show that it doesn’t take too much skill or money to put together some great homemade cards :)
