When I met with Michelle, I was so excited to utilize her fun color palette when designing her custom invitations into a unique, art deco styled suite. I also created a ‘Great Gatsby’ themed monogram to use throughout their stationery (see matchbook & cuff links too!). Everything really came together beautifully by combining the stunning bouquets [by Fantasy Flowers] with the wedding day coordination [A Savvy Event]. I had to find time to showcase just a few of my favorite photos for your planning inspiration! ;)
Thanks Brides California for featuring Papercake’s eco-friendly, tear-off Rsvp invitation design in their “Coming Up Roses” article [June 2015 issue]. I’m so excited to see our simple, but unique, custom suite showcased along the other amazing stationery designs utilizing rose & gold details.

Wow! this year is flying by! I’ve been so busy with new invite & stationery orders for the 2014 wedding season that I haven’t been able to update my website or blog as much as I should. But luckily I remembered to capture a quick photo each time I created a new custom design. Thank goodness for social media ;) #papercakedesigns

I cannot believe it’s been 2 years since I first illustrated the San Francisco skyline for Lianne’s custom wedding invitation. Recently I’ve been on a roll designing more cityscapes, as well as updating the SF skyline to each clients venue location! I’m excited to finally have a gallery of new invites, showcasing how each can be customized to a specific color theme, shape & size. Let me know your favorite combo! ;)
It seems like yesterday when we started the custom design process on their wedding invitation suite. We first created a ‘Paris skyline’ illustration [where he proposed!] on their personalized monogram & all-in-one guest/return address label wraps. Combined with stylish typography and swirl graphics we incorporated a color palette with hues of blush & taupe [enclosure cards printed on a pale pink/coral metallic paper]. I just love how the whole wedding day follows this romantic color theme so perfectly!
If you’re familiar with Etsy, then you may have already gotten inspiration from the many treasury lists created [an ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery.] The items found in this very cool, camera-themed treasury [below] are so unique that it blows my mind how creative people are…
…and yes, I’m super thrilled that my vintage cinema wedding invitation ticket was included too!
I designed this custom invite [with tear-off rsvp postcard] for trisha & tony a few years ago. Now looking back, I love how creative my brides have gotten by personalizing all the details to match their wedding theme!
> see below for just a few examples on how each invite was customized; paper colors, movie headline, label shapes, even a music note!
I finally received a sample of dave & emily’s letterpress wedding invitation package that I custom designed for them! I cannot believe how amazing the papel picado design looks printed [these photos don’t even do it justice!] ;) I’m so glad they found me & requested my graphic design assistance, since they already had a letterpress printer lined up [at Full Circle Press].

Lately I’ve been designing more custom invitations for DIY clients, who want me to provide either the hi-res PDFs (ready to print themselves) or the printed enclosure cards only (cut & ready to assemble). I absolutely love when I receive the completed wedding invitation suite from each diy client, so I can actually see the final result! ;) “thanks!”
