Today I’m sharing my first ever Save the Date design for Minted. For one reason or another I never managed to enter any of the Save the Date challenges in the 5+ years I’ve been submitting designs. I know, I’ve been missing out! Save the Dates are incredibly popular, and are a great way to show off (and justify) all of those beautiful engagement session photos.
Storybook is a full bleed photo card with playful type, banners, and swashes to showcase your wedding date. The backer and liner feature a neutral kraft background with coordinating patterns.
I have three more non-photo Save the Dates launching in the near future, I’ll be back to share them just as soon as they’re live!
Today I’m introducing the second of my most recent designs for Minted’s wedding invitation line: Baby’s Breath.
A little backstory on the inspiration…
In college I worked at a flower shop on campus, and I hated Baby’s Breath- I preferred other fillers, or nothing but greens with my flowers. More recently though, I developed a little crush on it- thanks to images like these:
Baby’s Breath (aka Gypsophila) on its own can be quite lovely, with its cloud-like fluffiness. I wanted this suite to capture that dreamy quality of Baby’s Breath, as well as its subtle nature. To see more beautiful images of Baby’s Breath in action, check out this Pinterest Board that I put together.
My most recent wedding invitations for Minted were a lot of fun to work on. I really enjoyed focusing on the details in the coordinating pieces- to me, these thoughtful elements and unique touches are what make invitations memorable. Here is the first of my three new wedding suites, Country Classic:
My favorite parts of this suite are all of the slightly mismatched patterns. In designing the various pieces I wanted the overall look to be sweet and dainty, like the contents of a linen drawer in an old farmhouse.
