Remember, my post about printing my friends’ wedding invitations a while ago? I printed just the texts of the invitations, direction cards, RSVP cards, and my friend, Shizuka was going to do the art… and when I received the final invitation, I was blown away! Came out so great! She did such an awesome job “stenciling” (I think I mentioned silkscreen before, but I was wrong) each art, color by color, one by one, all by her hand…! GREAT JOB, Shizuka! So gorgeous, letterpress gives a very nice quality, too.
She hand wove this Japanese knot thing (I don’t know what it’s called… it has a name, though) called “Mizuhiki”:
and inside of the package:
I love the gold she used throughout the invitation set and when you see the actual piece, it really has nice and warm yet very sophisticated feel, I am super happy to get to help her with this! and CONGRATULATIONS! :)
