In a world of texts and emails and instagram, sometimes real live paper invitations are a pleasure (anachronism?) to receive. No grown ass woman can be bothered on a regular basis but sometimes on occasions like Thanksgiving or P’s 30th it is fun to make it special and exercise your inner creative.

Supplies:
Watercolor paint/stamp/ink friendly blank cards and envelope
Watercolor paint
Stamps & ink
wax seal & sealing wax
optional: paper to line the envelope.

I followed this idea at Oh So Beautiful Paper for the watercolor in a masculine/my favorite color (black!). I lined the envelope with brown craft paper. I finished with a wax seal in mustard.

Voila!
