Our talented friends, Rosa and Michael came to us with the request for something totally unique to represent their wedding day. As a designer herself, Rosa had already commenced with some design ideas but wanted to know what we could suggest that would take it to another level. This was the birth of the ‘Babushka’ invitation! Similar to the famous Russian doll, each layer peels away to reveal another smaller piece underneath. We carefully designed the die formes to create the unique layers which included having the RSVP return envelope hidden inside, and a cheeky message to finish it off. This was a wonderful collaboration between ourselves and another designer to create something that was one of a kind, just like the amazing couple it represented.

This suite featured a standard size invitation, letterpress printed with grey and yellow inks on 300gsm off white 100% cotton stock in five separate layers to include the front layer, invitation, information and RSVP layers and the backing layer, all hand glued to create the final piece. Plus letterpress return addresses on both invitation and RSVP envelopes.
