21st Birthday Invites

I was so excited when my sister-in-law asked if I could make her invites for her 21st Birthday. She told me she liked the flower petal design I created for my house warming party and would like black as the base colour. To create an invite with a simple but elegant feel, I picked Metallic Lustre as my second colour to go with the matt black. As you all know, its a bit hard to print light text on black paper on printer, so I had decided to do hand calligraphy for the writing with metallic silver ink. Although it took more time than just printing the invite off from a prnter, I had lots of fun with the calligraphy, don't you think it gives the invite a more personal touch? Finally I designed a little initials motif for the invite, which consists of a beautiful swarvoski crystal between the initials. The invites are enclosed within the flower petal envelope and sealed with beautiful swarvoski crystal.

I kept all the invites in a brown cardboard box
