A few months ago, T, a bride-to-be, approached me with a request to create custom Thank You cards for her wedding. T had the paper, the font and the colors already chosen, since the thank you cards were meant to match her letterpress invitation and reply card. The theme of her invitations involved two loving elephants - symbols of loyalty and patience. We played around with different layouts involving T and E's initials and the elephants, and finally, this is what T choose.
The cards were printed on Crane's lettra paper in ecru with chocolate brown ink. To get the greeting on the outside of the card and the initials on the inside, the cards required two passes through my gocco.
