Genius — I think this is the word that best describes these fan-freakin’-tastic letterpress 30th birthday party invitations that Kathleen from Twig & Thistle created for her husband’s birthday. And she used oh so droolworthy Gmund Savanna faux bois stock, which just elevates the level of brilliance.
Kathleen went with a subtly carnivorous theme, inspired by her husband’s “meat tooth”, incorporating graphical stamp elements that look like the brands that you’d find on high quality sides of beef and using kraft paper folded like meat packaging for envelopes, which were sealed shut with meat stickers that she got from the butcher at her grocery store. Sheer awesomeness!
RSVP cards were digitally printed, and the arrows that embellish the cards were run through a Xyron to create stickers, which were applied for a layered look. Letterpressed white ink on the dark, aforementioned faux bois Gmund Savanna paper, combined with all of the elements, gives these invitations an ultra masculine feel, bringing to mind an upscale steakhouse.
