This save the date design is extra special because it was designed for my little cousin Marie-Claude and her future husband Patrick. These guys looooove Japan... they took a trip there a few years back and we thought they would never come home! So lets say their wedding theme was a pretty easy one to pick out. Colourful and full of Japanese related design elements, I feel the highlight of this piece is their custom monogram. We researched various Japanese characters in order to find the two that best described Marie-Claude and Patrick. I then re-drew and combined both characters together as a monogram illustration. We then had this wonderful mini stamp custom made to ink the back flaps of their aqua envelopes. The best part is the fact that they will be able to ink many of their upcoming wedding stationery pieces as well as keeping the custom stamp as a wedding souvenir.
