Water Flowers and Foil Roses for a BELLA Invitation

Nothing says charming and beauty all in one like this invitation I designed and crafted for BELLA New York Magazine, I’m honored to have the magazine come back to us for a second year in a row to make this exclusively for their yearly Hamptons White Party!


Staying with the color palette chosen by Editor-in-Chief Courtenay Cooper Hall I headed to my happy place (my crafting room) to start my designing and inspiration process.

The invitation was to be simple yet elegant while carrying a refreshing and fine look. Keeping that into account I created digital water flowers and placed them on a carefree layout for a natural vibe.

To add a fine touch I knew I had to incorporate a separate texture and/or element over the digital design so I dove into aluminum paper and rose die cuts. The shiny and luminous reflection the aluminum paper projected gave the roses an allure adding that elegant feel. A total of 950 foil roses were made, each invitation had 4 roses that were glued and arranged individually by hand.

I’m enamored by this vibrant color combination and it’s refreshing vibe while conserving simple elegance.
