A fusion of culture, art and color were the driving trio of inspiration behind this cheerful design that we’re exploring from Emma Jo Stationery today, and we can’t get enough. The intricate pattern adorned in brights and hints of gold edging have stolen our hearts. Did we mention the two adorable elephants? See the whole thing right here!

From Emma Jo Stationery… Sonia came to me last year with such a lovely idea for her and Chris’s invites I couldn’t wait to get started and these invites have now become a firm favourite of mine. Sonia wanted the invites to reflect the couples cultures and for the stationery to incorporate two Indian elephants, Chris’s elephant with a colourful tartan print and Sonia’s inspired by the paintings from the Indian Elephant Festival.

As they were having Indian and Scottish celebrations three separate invites were needed and so Sonia wanted these to be defined with foil edging, gold for the Indian invites and silver for the Scottish invites. To really let the edging sing we duplexed the card to double the weight to 700gsm creating a deeper edge to really show off the shine! Both sets also came with RSVP postcards and information cards. The envelope flaps were letterpress printed in black with the couples elephant motifs.

I loved the whole idea for these invites and the thought Sonia put into them and the use of multiple process and finishes makes these invites extra special.
