Wedding Invite, and IF: ‘Celebrate’

20 Feb

A wedding invitation card I designed, illustrated and wrote out for my cousin who just got married. We had it  screen-printed on handmade paper. The text is Gujarati. The top image shows a motif depicting the elephant-god Ganesha whose blessings are generally sought by Hindus when they begin anything new. This section is folded over the illustration of the birds in the bottom image, which is how the card looks opened out.

I had been meaning to post this for a few days and just today suddenly thought it would be perfect for the IF theme “Celebrate” — but unfortunately I was a bit too late to submit it on IF. Oh, well.
