INSPIRATION: vellum enclosure cards

Vellum enclosure cards have been very popular with our clients this year and I couldn't be happier about this! I love incorporating vellum into stationery because it is a simple and inexpensive way to add some visual interest and texture. In fact you can mix and match all your papers the way Lindsay chose to (above photo). We combined ivory papers in pearlescent, matte and transparent finishes to complement her sophisticated wedding invitations.

Vellum also allows us to combine images in an unexpected way. For Melanie and Joseph, we stacked a yellow vellum reception card, printed with a crimson wren, over an ivory reply card printed with a magnolia branch. The resulting effect is that the bird is perched on the branch!

Vellum is available in many colors, and even metallic finishes. So it is a nice way to bring in an accent color or a bit of shimmer.

Soon I'll be sharing other ways to incorporate vellum iny our wedding invitations and special event stationery!
