For a wedding gift for a good friend, I decided to design custom made recipe cards in a hand painted box. She is a talented cook, and I hoped this would be a thoughtful gift for her. Her wedding colors were shades of pale blue and brown, and her wedding was very classic with vintage details. I was inspired by a romantic French bakery, so I used calligraphy, a round seal and a pinstriped background.
The cards were 5 x 7 inches, single sided. The cards were printed on 70 lb white Cougar card stock. The box was purchased at a local art supply store, then painted to reflect the design of the cards. The fonts include Scala Sans and hand drawn calligraphy.
