The paper I would print this one on would be Cartiera Magnani’s Arturo cards. They have a felt finish which is super soft (like kid gloves) and has a deckled edge. I used this paper for my own wedding 3 years ago, and I recommend it to any brides who want their invitation paper to have a hint of color.
All names and dates are made up. No crows were harmed in the making of this Photoshop mockup.
Well I finished the watercolor details of wedding invite suite for my friends Joe and Tracy a couple days ago. After re-coloring some of the earlier ones that looked too pale compared with the rest, I left them under weights last night to flatten out from all the handling and extra water. They will be ready to ship on Monday.
I decided to go with variety rather than every card being the same. Rather, the color palette is the same, but the second leaf is not ALWAYS yellow with a tinge of orange. Below are some of my favorites.
