Galia & Doron

Galia and Doron got married recently. Galia's mum asked me to make two cards - one for her daughter and one for the young couple - both using the design of their wedding invitation as inspiration.
The first card I made for the couple featured the teeny tiny letters of their names, handcut in the same font that was used on their invitation. I then cut out leaves in matching colours and placed them in two corners of the card, just like the invitation. 
For the second card I decided to reverse the design. I cut the leaf pattern out of the white card and added a paper inlay with a watercolour effect, in similar colours to the invitation. I then cut out Galia's name in a delicate script font, using the same watercolour paper once again.
It was interesting to see two very different cards, both inspired by the same invitation.
"Love the cards, thank you. [They are] fantastic." mum wrote to me.
I added my own small card to the collection too, once again cutting out leaves in the matching pastel colours and adding the Hebrew words מזל טוב, Mazal Tov, which literally means "good luck", though the phrase is also used to express "congratulations".
Even with the excitement of the big day, the bride was kind enough to let me know on her wedding day how much she loved the cards!
