I was thrilled to take on this project for The Green Kangaroo because the chalkboard trend has been sweeping couples off their feet — almost more than the mason jar craze! To set this design apart from competitors’ invitations, I went for an entirely hand-drawn romantic feel, while keeping it relatively simple.
I carried out the design concept through various other items in the suite, including: response + accessory cards, save the dates, and day of items such as place cards, table cards, and programs.

Hand illustrated birds and an artistic floral design adorn this cheerful holiday card. I designed this double-sided card for The Green Kangaroo’s holiday collection to appeal to customers looking for a subtle, yet festive style suitable for a combined seasonal photo engagement announcement, save the date, or even birth announcement. I created this card in three color options.
