It’s hard to believe that it’s already March, but that means it’s time for a new design of the month! This month’s featured design is Antique Luck, and the entire suite is on sale now for 10% off (or 20% if you order 6 printed pieces or more!). Aimee O’Boyle, the designer behind Antique Luck, gave us some insight on the design (and some special inspiration on Pinterest, too!).
I am really quite fond of the idea of using old traditions in a wedding. While most people think of things like wearing a white wedding dress, not seeing the groom before the ceremony or having something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new, I like the idea of taking it a step further and including some lucky symbolism on the paper goods. Did you know that the four leaf clover petals represent faith, hope, love, and luck? And did you also know that if you found an old horseshoe with nails still in it, the number of nails determines how many years of prosperous luck you will have? I think its really very sweet to add some “lucky” touches to the big day like this. I just adore the symbolism behind the four leaf clover and horseshoe and knew that I had to use those images in my design. To give it an authentic vintage vibe, I incorporated hand drawn illustrative elements, like the ribbon banner, and paired it with a really clean stripe, which can be found on some of the coordinating pieces for this design. The combination of fonts really speaks to vintage playbills and posters and I think it adds the perfect touch to the overall design. — Aimee

Let the seashore inspire your wedding decor! Muted shades of sand and coral paired with natural beachy elements can make for a whimsical yet elegant wedding. Pair this style with our hand-calligraphed Antigua letterpress wedding invitation for a chic, laid-back look. We would like to think that the Antigua grew amongst clams, oysters, starfish and scallops but in reality we hand printed these beauties on our antique printing presses. Take the beauty of this design one step further and have Maybelle hand-calligraph your invitation envelopes for a completely coordinated invitation set.
