Letterpress wedding : Costa Rica

Beautiful!  Katie and Paul will marry in a summer ceremony in stunning Costa Rica, so they wanted their letterpress invitations to reflect the elegance of their wedding as well as the relaxed tropical atmosphere of their seaside location.

I created a custom design in emerald green, coral and cornflower blue, featuring silhouettes of a Costa Rican hummingbird and the beautiful Guaria Morada, which is the Costa Rican national flower.

The three shades of hand-mixed ink were printed using magnesium plates on super-thick 100% cotton card, and the invitation suite was accented with shimmery copper envelopes.

Happiness!

    Lovely! Would you mind sharing which pantone color you used to match the emerald green?
