Behind the Design: Vintage Applique

Nov 22 2011

Vintage Appliqué is one of our newer designs and here to explain the inspiration behind the design is none other than the designer herself … Jen.

Jen, Graphic Designer at MagnetStreet

The inspiration behind this design was the timeless pattern of lace. Such a romantic fabric, lace never loses its dreamy and enchanting demeanor and I wanted to create an invite that gave off that same classic feeling. Paired with a soft cursive script and a muted pink color, I wanted this invite to stand the test of time and be perfect for any season or wedding theme.

The timeless fabric of lace has indeed stood the test of time–its current resurgence is proof of that.

Truly gorgeous Jen. I love how the design flourish is effortlessly carried from one stationery item to the next–you had me at the Envelope Liner. This design would be perfectly lovely for both a modern or a vintage-styled wedding.

  1. What a beautiful, romantic design…I can almost feel the lace on that Invitation Holder! Very realistic looking.
