If you like these delicate hand-stitched designs, then you’ll love our Birdies invitation, which displays two established love birds, or our Hoot wedding invitation exhibiting two wise owls perched together on a branch. These three sewn designs are suitable for a vintage wedding theme as they are printed with a linen-effect background, which gives an elegant, old-fashioned effect.

Stitching is not the only craft that our designer Jo has introduced to make up these new, illustrated designs. She has also included designs inspired from hand-painted watercolour pictures. The Blossom design is a perfect example of where this technique has been used to create a realistic blossom tree, with the petals in full bloom. This watercolour effect makes the Blossom design a fitting style for a rustic wedding theme as the original crafted pictures are made with transparent paint, which allows the light to shine through. When this design is digitally printed this sunlight effect is replicated, offering your guests a hint of your spring or summer wedding in the months to come.

Over the cold and dreary winter months when your guests receive their wedding invitations the Felicity hand-drawn design is sure to lift their spirits! Our designer Jo manufactured these designs from hand, by using her skill and passion for watercolour painting and embroidery. These creations, inspired by nature, were scanned into the computer so that when they are digitally printed they produce the same authentic, crafted effect for your wedding invitations.
