Tropical Hibiscus Wedding Invite

It is so much fun when a couple chooses a theme that I can fully embrace, and this is one such theme. I am a huge Ocean Lover and so is this couple. The couple wanted to incorporate a Hibiscus Flower and a Tropical Feel. (without tryin' too hard) These Invites will feature a "Natural Seagrass Backing"

Here are my "Sneak Peak Idea Boards"...which do you like?

"Wedding in the Woods" Lake Arrowhead Wood Invite

How wonderful is it to receive an invitation printed on wood? I kinda' love an organic element that  adds to the feel of a mountain wedding

Lots of love for this folded espresso cardstock with attached pocket that embraced this yummy wood printed "Lake Arrowhead Invite"
The envelope had a beautiful bamboo liner and the outer flap had the couples "tree logo"

To'spruce' up (pun intended)  the attached pocketfold, I placed the  layers of wood and coordinating cardstock

Response cards like this one, make you want to reply...

Here are a few of the design options I gave the couple.
