I’m just about ready to sign off for a little holiday break, but before I go, wow, do I ever have some crave-worthy paper to share with you.

Bella Figura’s 2012 wedding invitation collection just launched, and it is absolutely stunning. The 83 new designs include work by five new artists – Beth Barr of Two Blue Doors, Nicole Black (The Left-Handed Calligrapher), Gina Dean and Lauren Richel Kelly of Ditto Paper, and Carolynn Giordano of Two Brunettes – who join 26 additional indie artists whose designs are represented in the Bella Figura collection.

The beautiful new invitation collection offers so many dreamy designs and printing options and techniques for brides and grooms-to-be. Metallics, which were big in 2011 and will be even bigger in 2012, are well represented, and Bella Figura now offers foil stamping (swoon) and foil edging (double swoon) in 12 colors, which range from more traditional gold, silver, and copper to non-traditional colors like fuchsia, indigo, forest, and teal.

Also new are three neon letterpress ink colors (YES!) – hot pink, lime-aid, and day-glo – for those of you looking to do something bold and daring with your wedding invites, and I love that they’ve created a custom postage stamp design to coordinate with each new design in the collection.
Check out more of the swoon-worthy invitations from the collection below, and browse all of the new designs over at Bella Figura.
