The MSSA Spring Gala Invitation Design

The MSSA Spring Gala, themed “The Wishing Well,” has held a couple of weeks ago at the beautiful Don Strange Ranch! Last fall, BlackStone Studio had the pleasure of creating a unique logo for this event, so I was more than happy to work with their committee chairs again to design and print these custom trifold invitations, which included donation cards and personalized envelopes. Check them out above!

Amanda & Brian Wedding Invitation Design

BlackStone Studio recently designed these lovely wedding invitations for Amanda & Brian. These lovebirds became husband and wife on February 14th — so romantic! Amanda wanted her invites to be elegant, simple and contemporary. We had them printed on a gorgeous pearl cardstock which has a subtle shimmer, with envelopes to match! Check out the invitations above!
