Crimson wedding card book

This book contains a collection of wedding cards bound together as a keepsake. The highly-customised book is packed with special wishes from friends and family and is an original way of keeping these precious memories together.

My client had saved many memorabilia from their wedding day – from the bridesmaid dress material, wedding ribbon to the wedding invite. Each of these details provided inspiration for me and were incorporated into the design of this unique wedding card book.

The red material which I used to line the inside of the white leather was spare material saved from the bridesmaid dresses. The vivid red creates a beautiful contrast against the white leather and other hints of this red are used throughout the binding.

This wedding was a winter wedding and the motif of a snowflake was used on the invitations. I embroidered this motif on the front of the cover tying in the winter theme once again. This handmade book measures 16 x 21 x 5 cms.
