Lotus Invitations

Last week I was immersed working on a wedding invitations suite that involved different elements and was completely hand-made, using the lotus folding structure, letterpress and calligraphy. I assembled a few moments of the process in the pictures below, I hope it can give a little idea of the design. The client chose a metallic paper for the invitation and a floral decorative paper for the band closure. Printing was done on Stardream paper and envelopes. The Ebru calligraphy is by Micah Zimring and letterpress printing by Albertine Press. After designing, cutting, folding and gluing the different parts, I also calligraph and addressed all the envelopes. The design process started months ago, but what a pleasure when all the elements were ready and I had to work on the final pieces. This explain why I was away from blogging for the entire week!
