Cape Cod Save the Dates in Gray and Navy Blue


 I created these charcoal gray and navy blue save the dates on a special request from a couple getting married in Plymouth, MA. We used the same gray-blue map that's on my Cape Cod Notecards (hint: if you're on the Cape, you can probably buy them locally! Check out my link to the right to see a map) and then did "squid ink" dark gray envelopes to match. I think they look really classy!
If you're interested in Cape Cod Map save the dates contact me, or you can purchase a pre-made sample on my website of the original version in navy.

Striped Bass Wedding Invitations with Lighthouse Stamps


I developed these Striped Bass wedding invitations on a special request - if you're interested in getting some for your wedding contact me. These wedding invites are fun for fishermen (and women!) The second photo shows the matching RSVP, with the striped bass carefully considering the dangling hook, as well as the matching envelope liner with waves. Finally the last photo shows some great nautical stamps (most wedding invitations require a forever stamp + .20 since they're bulkier than regular mail). If you're interested in where I got the stamps check out my post on vintage stamps for your wedding invitations.
