I’ve planned this pop-up invitation for so long, I couldn’t believe I finally pulled it off! First of all I have to come clean- not all of our many many guests got this version. Only 50 lucky people (family and close friends) received these hand-made beauties, while the rest of our guests got a delicate printed graphic interpretation of the same images. Another confession I must make- I didn’t do this alone. My good friend Avital was with me through the whole process…
The dancing couple are of course Ari and myself, so I was very pleased when people were able to recognize us easily. The figures and trees were laser cut and assembled by hand. We’re getting married at a place called “Baya’ar”, which means “In the Forest” in Hebrew. It’s a beautiful place at the heart of a forest, all surrounded by trees. The branches theme goes all the way to the center pieces at the wedding (and besides, I’m quite obsessed with branches graphics…).
The back of the invitations is made of textured card-stock in deep, dark purple. When you take it out of the envelope it’s blank, dark and unexpected, nothing prepares you for the surprising content… The envelopes and interior, as well as the laser cut images, are made of a special, silky-smooth ivory shaded paper. The invitation is both in Hebrew and Spanish, because Ari is from Uruguay (and because I found the symmetry lovely…).
Hope you love it as much as I do!
Big day is coming up real soon
