Brunch and Blessings

I was so honored when a very special hostess asked me to create these invitations.  I have known Mrs. Sharon for more than sixteen years, and she is one of the best examples of a true southern lady. Mrs. Sharon is one of the most kind, strong, and hospitable ladies that you will ever meet. She planned this brunch to honor a sweet expecting mother of two precious baby boys, who will be here very soon.  

 For this invitation, I used pointed-pen calligraphy to create the handmade elements of the invitation.  First, I designed a classic monogram that featured the initials of the twin boys' first names.  I enclosed the letters in a simple rustic wreath.  Then, I drew the rest of the handmade elements in traditional copperplate calligraphy.

 After I digitized the calligraphy, I printed the invitations on beautiful paper from K.A. Artist Shop, Athens, Georgia.  I lined the cream envelopes (also from K.A. Artist Shop) with a custom liner I created to to match the invitation.

 Each invitation was addressed with pointed-pen calligraphy.  Beautiful botanical stamps completed the look.
