Mexican Tile Inspired Invitations

There are so many things to admire about these special invitations.

The deep V-shaped envelope flaps, the coordinating envelope color, and the envelope lining that matches the pattern on the main invitation is the attention to detail you want for these kinds of special occasions.

The highly textured hand of the paper (Fabriano Watercolor Paper, White, Matte) enhances the motif, which is inspired by old-world Mexican tiles found at the venues where these events took place.

One side of the accordion folded invitation is dominated by the tile pattern. The opposite is primarily white with the tile pattern used more as decoration – a nice rest for the eye. (Love the accordion fold too for the way it recalls how tiles are actually stacked.)

The use of black paper photo corners to hold the RSVP card in place on the anniversary invitation is just perfection.

The address label is clever too. It’s positioned to wrap around the envelope – one end contains the return address visible from the back. The other larger portion of the label is visible from the front where it provides the space for hand addressing.

The care taken in printing, cutting and assembling each invitation by hand is evident. The whole effect is lovely, warm and personal. These invitations would elicit a “Yes!” whether attending or not!
