A Day To Remember
Among the things I did in school, this was a nice treat outside of my normal work projects. I got to design the stationery for my brother's wedding. I made the save-the-date card, invitations, RSVP, and various other wedding embellishments, such as the thumbprint tree.
Now you may be asking yourself "Kristen what is a
thumbprint tree exactly?" well I'll tell you.
It's a hand drawn unique tree (by me of course) and the object of this bare tree is to fill in the leaves with your guests thumbprints. you achieve this by pressing your thumb to an ink pad, and choosing a branch to press your thumb onto. You may also choose to have your guests sign their thumb print. This is a really nice keepsake for the bride and groom.
The bride wanted a light airy shabby chic feel to her wedding, and the stationary was no exception, we used pastel colors, and an illustrated feel for this design. The save the date card was a real postcard, we had little games on the guests tables to fill out and play. She wanted all the information to be portrayed on one trifold card, a challenging feat for any designer, but as I've said before, I'm magic, and I squeezed every last bit of info on that card as well as some typography embellishments, thank you very much. This was a rare treat and a privilege to be able to do this for my brother and his lovely bride.
