It's hard to tell the pearlescent nature of the paper in the photos, but you can see the subtle sheen and the shimmer in some of the close-ups. The contrast of the deep red + brown gradients with the shimmery champagne hue is just lovely.
One-Folded, 5 x7 Card – Front + Back
For those who are interested in the production process, here are the technical specs for this job. The one-folded, 5 x7 invitation and the self mailer response card were printed 4-Color, Digital on Citi Paper USA, Autumn Hay, 98C weight paper. The adhesive label was also 4-Color, Digital, but printed on standard adhesive paper that wasn't iridescent for cost efficiency. No printing on the chocolate A7 envelope as per the original design; client opted for addressed labels where she could get custom calligraphy done in chocolate ink. Also, I provided the client with the "H" monogram art file so she could get custom matching stamps.

Next design phase for Stephanie + Justin is to develop the rest of their event day day collateral (wedding program, escort cards and menu) so it coordinates with the established theme and colors. We will be printing on the same iridescent paper stock, too. Stay tuned!
