Laser Cut Love

Recently, I had the pleasure of designing these fun wedding invites. I am officially in love with laser cutting. I can't quit marveling at the intricate detail you can achieve. They look so delicate, but they're quite strong and remarkably stiff when you hold them in your hands.

The dreamy quote comes from Dr. Seuss, and is a personal favorite of the bride and groom. I purposely designed it as a separate piece from the actual invitation, because I thought it would be fun for people to keep as a memento, maybe put it on display or frame it. The bride also had a few extras made, and plans to use them for decorations at the wedding reception.

The long, skinny photo-mailing labels are attached to royal blue cardstock and open to reveal all of the invitation information - a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

They were were assembled and mailed in clear, plastic envelopes. My favorite part of creating invitations, is to design something that begs to be opened the minute someone pulls it out of the mailbox. These definitely do that.

A simple, sophisticated, and fun invite for a lovely couple. 

I highly recommend LaserCuttingShapes.com.  They were awesome!
