Private Commission - Party Invitations

I have just completed an order for a set of 30 invitations for a 60th birthday party.


I began making these invitations by creating an appliquéd and embroidered tea party artwork. Finishing touches were achieved with hand-embroidery. The artwork was then scanned and the blue gingham border was added in Photoshop. I printed the artwork on photo paper and then attached it to the blank cards using zig-zag stitch for that final handmade touch.


This is a Cornish tea party hence the pasties on the cake stand!
