Vogue magazine’s Fashion Fund finalists created flirty, color-rich party looks inspired by butterflies. We used this idea to create gorgeous butterfly wedding invitations featuring a rich Eggplant purple background card and white overlay, wrapped with an exquisite fine paper floral sash imported from Italy. The overlay was printed with vintage Japanese clip art of a butterfly, which would be a great motif for spring weddings and could be used on your program, place cards and thank-you’s. The Italian Portofino sash is made from Italian cream paper printed with a beautiful floral design in pink, metallic gold and teal.
