This is a frosty take on a Holly Trifold wedding invitation from the Natale collection.  The Natale collection is different to most of our collections.  It’s broader in scope in that it covers many ideas for Christmas inspired stationery.  Whereas other collections are more specific, such as wooden lovebirds (spoilers 😉 ).  Actually you can find that spoiler here.  It’s not like I’m a secret agent!  I want people to know about my products.

Natale means Christmas (in Italian)

Today I wanted to showcase an idea involving Holly but without resorting to the stereo typical colour scheme of green and red.  As why limit yourself?  The colours keep well with winter anyway.  So I wanted to use some frosty blues but thought they need a bit of warmth so instead of red berries they’re yellow.  E.g. candles can give warmth to very otherwise cool or icey looking décor.

Trifold Wedding Invitation

The invitation used in this is a Trifold Invitation.  What I love about the Trifold type of invitation is the inside.  You can really push the boat out on the presentation and make a great looking invitation that is still very functional.  Inviting your guests in style and giving them lots of important information.  As well as giving them an RSVP with which they can reply.  There’s even space for things like meal options for each guest.  I think with the holly we’re able to frame the information really well with the design to make a stunning looking invitation that is bound to impress anyone you invite.

Another thing I really like about Trifold Invitations is opening them.  Admittedly that may sound silly so let me explain.  When you open the first part of the invitation, you can see one of the inside panels but not the other two.  Instead you see another outer side of the card.  I like to use this space to have some fun with the design but you could do whatever you fancy with it.  How about a poem or engagement photo?  Or maybe use this side for the invitation so it’s seen first.  In this case though there is a different take on the holly design without the text used on the front cover.

Bespoke Invitations

By the way, the colours used in this example are totally flexible.  So they could be changed to match your tastes.  Similarly this design could be used on any of the other invitation types, such as Bifolds or Cheque Book style Wedding Invitations.  See all the invitation types here.

So there you have it, a whistle stop tour of a frosty coloured holly inspired Trifold Christmas Wedding invitation.    You can visit the Natale section on Artemis Stationery here.
