omg these are beautiful!!  your design motif (?) is what i’ve been thinking about for my invites/stationery… did you design them? i was thinking of using pandas (FI calls me lil’ panda ) and bamboo… and sticking the double happiness in there somewhere as well…

 i’m not sure if you’ve posted before about the design… but please share how you came up with it!  thanks for sharing!

I love these! They are beautiful. I would love to know how you did the envelopes and the inserts such as the map, RSVP, etc cards.

So cute though.

Those are awesome! How did you close your pocketfold? That’s what I’m fighting with right now. I don’t know how to close it and then after it’s open, have it be able to close again.

 

And we’re going to Banff on our honeymoon!

Hi!

I’m curious if you had any problems with the dark purple envelope/gold ink combo.  I really want to gocco my dark blue RSVP envelopes in gold ink- will the post office hate me?!

I want to use gold ink on my dark brown envelopes. I tried using it with my fountain pen, but it’s clearly too thick. May I ask if you used a calligraphy pen, brush etc? I’m tempted to pick something up, but am also not sure if I want to try using something I’m too unfamiliar (i.e. a brush) on my wedding envelopes…

did all the type you gocco’d come out sharply? i was wondering how small i would be able to have the type be while still being perfectly legible. thanks! and your invites look amazing!
