I just realized I have not posted very much of my recent custom work so I thought I would share a few over the next few days...
Below is Kate & Avi's set. The couple lives in & got married in Brooklyn last September. For their invitation we decided to play up their love for handmade with a hand sewn invitation design. I used embroidery thread and sewed it directly into paper to create the design and then added hand painted lettering before scanning the art for printing.
(after noting some comments- I sewed one piece of paper and then scanned the design- not embroidered each individual invitation. I think that would be amazing but also a little crazy pants)
