Cinque Donne: The Second Sister Honoree

As you know, from my last post, my new Cinque Donne font is named in honor of women, in particular, my sisters and girlfriends.

Today’s focus is on my sister Maryann.  She’s a mother four and grandmother of eight with one on the way!

The best way to describe Maryann is to use the word, Sweetheart.

She has a heart of gold and genuinely cares about people.

When I was nine, she was right in the middle of her teenage years.

That meant dancing with her girlfriends in the basement and talking about boys.

Of course, I was enthralled with both topics.

To my delight, she let me hang out with her and her friends and taught me all the latest dances.

That attention and inclusion made me feel so special. And I actually won a dance contest using the moves she taught me:)

That’s the feeling she still gives to everyone she meets.

When her daughter sees me dancing at a family wedding, she’s always quick to note,

“You dance just like my mom!”.

I’ll take that as a compliment!

Thanks, Maryann, for being such a loving sister, mother, and gramma.

Cinque Donne is #10 on the Hot New Fonts list!

DIY Black, White and Gold Wedding Invitation

These DIY wedding invitations have a sophisticated look but

can be done at home with the right paper and font.

It was created for the wedding of the couple for whom I made this wine themed bridal shower invite.

The invitation features the bride and groom’s name boldly in my Dom Loves Mary Stylistic Font.

The flourishes are from my Belluccia Flourishes font.

I used Adobe Caslon Pro for the text.

The shimmery, white card stock ( Curious Metallics Ice Silver)

is backed with a black card stock called Boutique So….Silk.

Both are from FasClampitt Paper.

One thing to note, the white paper is a thick card stock.

If your printing at home, make sure your printer can handle it.

Otherwise you may want to make color copies at FedEx Kinkos.

I know their machines are able to handle thick paper.

You would need to print 2 on an 8.5″ x 11″ then cut to size.

 The invitations are packaged in these gorgeous stardust gold pouches

from Marsupial Papers.  The invitations are secured

to the pouch with double stick tape and the rehearsal dinner invitation

and RSVP card are inserted in the pouch.

 On the other side of the RSVP card, I used

embellishments from my Belluccia Calligraphy Font.

( The pointing finger and border around the return address.)

Having an RSVP postcard saves money since you don’t need an envelope.

And the return postage stamps are .34 instead of .46.

The pouch was sealed with a monogram backed with black.

The best way to do this is to attach the monogram to the pouch  just on the sides so you can tuck the end of the flap into the monogram card.

This allows for easy opening and closing by the guests without tearing up the invitation.

Here’s a video I created to show you how to address envelopes with the font in Microsoft Word.

It’s used on the Rehearsal dinner invite ( love the gray stripes in the background), Wedding invitation, RSVP and return envelope, as well as the program and favor bags seen in the last pic below.
