One of my favorite holiday designs last year was for the Hewitt Family. Their invitation suite was a three holiday greeting - holiday card, new address announcement and housewarming party invite all wrapped up into one.
Instead of traditional greens, reds and the like, we opted to used colors from their new ranch home - warm browns, antique golds, spicy curry yellow and fiery copper. To bring in the holiday feel - I hand glittered - uh - nearly a thousand little snowflakes. My house and studio were gilded to say the least. :)
The invitation suite was a 7x7 pocket fold, double matte family photo on the front panel, single matte holiday housewarming panel, gilded snowflakes, single matte photo of the girls, six layer invitation panel (yeoweee!), direction panel, accommodation panel, reply card, reply envelope and custom outside envelope. It was a flurry of work here the week before Christmas last year getting these babies ready for delivery.
The Hewitt's have become dear friends of mine and I'm looking forward to more special greetings & invites!!
Happy Holidays to all!!
