BESPOKE: marian and john

I L O V E custom designing stationery. Most of the custom work I do is wedding stationery and birth announcements so I was extremely excited when Marian contacted Tulaloo for help creating her perfect holiday cards this year! Marian and her family have had a really blessed year; a daughter has celebrated her wedding and they have welcomed a brand new grandaughter into the world! Of course, she wanted to share memories and photographs of these joyous occasions with her friends and family through her Christmas cards.

Tulaloo designed an accordian fold pocket card to present these precious family photos. It uses a palette of cream, taupe and crimson and features an elegant damask print. The photographs are double sided and printed on a luxurious linen stock; they actually resemble small paintings more than photographs! During her consultation Marian mentioned that she always signs her name "Love & Peace" and that she would like to have this sentiment incorporated into her cards. Of course we obliged, and the words "love, peace and joy" are the key element that tie the entire piece together.

I am thrilled with the way these cards turned out and I hope Marian enjoys them as much as I do. She is possibly one of the most gracious and lovely clients I have ever had the pleasure to work with and I am so glad that she found and chose Tulaloo! (And doesn't she have the most beautiful family you've ever seen?!?)
