Velvet Crush

Well, it’s official, Velvet is hot hot hot for fall… We are big fans and have been using it in some of our designs and wanted to share some of the ways we have incorporated it if you are looking for more velvet inspiration. For the formal and classic invitations above (a December wedding), the belly bands are formed from embossing kelly green velvet for a polished finish.

For the same December wedding, velvet covered menu booklets were displayed on the place settings. Gold tags are etched with guests’ names as the place cards.  We collaborated on these menu booklets with Velvet Raptor.

To give guests a hint of the luxe winter feel, save the dates received a solid evergreen backing.

For a classic elegant winter wedding, black, white, and gold played together nicely. In addition to the monogram backing, we imprinted RSVP on the back on the response card for an added touch.

Velvet isn’t only for the paper pieces. We found velvet bags to use for the wedding welcome gift, perfect for the winter wonderland wedding above.

Another classic monogram makes a stand out appearance as a backing in golden velvet, giving it a modern feel.

So much sparkled about this New Year’s wedding invitation suite. Metallic paper was laser cut in a custom filigree pattern we designed, and came together to create an “inner envelope”.  The invitation cards inside were backed in the matching filigreed pattern in burnout velvet.

Menus were thick burnout velvet cards with name plates, but once you flipped the menus over, guests found cards tied to them with hand written notes personally from the bride.  We love seeing the elements of velvet making their place in design elements!
