Rifle Paper Co. new Party Invitations and Halloween Cards

Rifle_invitations3

How wonderful is it to receive an email form an artist you really admire asking you whether you would like to share her new work with your readers…well this happened to me last week …the super talented Anna Bond from Rifle Paper Co. told me about her launch of the new party invitation line for children. To start off Rifle Paper Co. has a selection of children's party invitations as well as a couple Halloween designs.

The collection will soon grow to include invitations for cocktail parties, bridal showers, holidays, etc. Most of the designs are available either with lines or as imprintables which you can run through your home printer. {ps. The invitations are sold in boxes of 10 for $20. They're 5"x7" with matching envelopes}

I have asked Anna to share some thoughts with us about herself and her work…

*Inspirations that you draw from
I love creating designs that are whimsical and have a nostalgic feel and try to use a limited color palette that's both playful yet sophisticated. I'm inspired by architecture, film, fashion, nature, history, and so many other things that I draw on to help shape my own aesthetic.

*Fun things you do when not working
Spare time seems rare these days but when I find it I love to read, cook, travel, and watch films.

*Length of time you take to design a card
Designing a card can take anywhere from an hour to a few days. Sometimes designs come to me quickly and I know exactly what I want to create. Other times I have to mull it over and there's trial and error period before I'm really happy with the final result.

*Excesses you pamper yourself with/indulge in
I try to be pretty frugal on a daily basis but I've learned that my favorite time to indulge is when traveling. Growing up my family never stayed in nice hotels when we went away (which was pretty rare in itself) but I think it's worth it live it up and and create a really relaxing experience for a few days. It's a wonderful escape to look forward to.

    These are great! I think it’s the retro feeling they have that gets me.
    The invitations and the illustrated notes and calling cards are fabulous!
