Sealed With A... Fleur-de-lis?

Birthdays have always been a BIG deal in the Ferrai Family; therefore, when my sister turns 30 (come February 19), you better believe a ruckus will be made. In preparation for the big day, my mother and I have tag-teamed to produce a wonderful weekend in wine country, something my wine connoisseur sister will adore. My sister also has an adoration for the color purple, gold, and the fleur-de-lis (okay maybe not an adoration, but she really likes these things).

As an early birthday present, I decided to make handmade custom invitations that had Tiffany's name all over them. After a quick trip to Paper Source the crafting began...

The envelopes were lined with purple tissue paper for a softer and more feminine look

The birthday girl's favorite symbol was used to seal the invitations with gold sealing wax

Cheers to the Birthday Girl!


  1. These invites are gorgeous! Just found your business and blog through Vinny Frye's portfolio (of Roulston Love Frye). She did my biz cards a few years back. Anyways, I'm a big Paper Source fan, and I love your use of their new color- fig!

  2. Thanks so much Alison! I just LOVE Paper Source- I am overwhelmed with a sense of happiness the moment I walk through those double doors. If I ever find myself in a creative lull off to Paper Source I go!
