We were able to share a great moment with Kristen Andrews in her preparations to creating memorable invitations for her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. Here are some words from Kristen about her project:
My parents are about to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Seeing as though I am the only sibling on the west coast, I assigned myself the task of invitation design as my only remote capability. Before flying home from New York back to Los Angeles after the holidays, I scoured through my dad’s scrapbook and uncovered the only remnants left of the wedding – a napkin, the original invite, and the clippings from the newspaper wedding announcements. In order to maintain and achieve a vintage feel, I used the velobase from the original and typed this up on my cursive typewritter. Once the napkin and the clipping was scanned, I just needed the paper. The Chartham Translucent Gold evoked a neat antique yet modern feel, and the Kodai Natural reminded me of the napkin itself.
Thank You so much for sharing your experience and project with us, Kristen!
