Cypress Tree Wedding

August 11th, 2009 @ 6:32 pm by Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

Yellow and gray is so lovely, no? The cypress trees of the wedding location of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California inspired this suite. Though I have never seen a cypress in person, it looks so elegant with its curving trunk. I love these invitations, especially the envelopes and the return address with the mini tree! Rich declared that to be his favorite part as well. I have no doubt this will be a truly beautiful wedding under the trees and next to the ocean. An invitation can make you feel that way…

On a side note, this cypress printed :: perfectly :: It can be a bit difficult to print large solid areas on a gocco, but I have pretty much mastered the technique {finally!} . The results are truly stunning when the ink coverage is smooth and consistent.

Love this invitation suite! My colors are yellow and gray, and I’m gocco-ing them as well. What’s your trick to printing large solid areas with the gocco, if you don’t mind me asking!
