PCL Invitation | Print Design

A few months back, I had the privilege of designing an invitation for a non-profit group called People for Care and Learning.  This organization is based out of Tennessee, but invests their time and money into helping communities in Cambodia thrive and become self-sustaining economically as well as socially.  If you have a moment to check out their website, I was personally amazed and in awe of what they are doing!

For the invitation, I wanted to create a textural “experience” yet convey the information cleanly.  I spent a lot of time going through images from trips the organization had taken, then came across an image of a beautiful little girl wearing bright colors and I fell in love with the feel of it!  I texturized the image graphically with the angles and overlayed them.  I also used the same angles on the other pieces, including the RSVP and the custom address labels.  I love how the colors just pop agains the craft paper and the twine!

I also created a custom hand-lettered stamp with PCL’s motto “A Community For Good” and just love how it added yet another layer of texture to the whole project.  {I used Simon Stamps for the custom rubber stamp}

This invitation included:
+ Custom Invitation – including hand lettering
+ RSVP Card
+ Custom address labels
+ Custom Rubber Stamp – hand lettered design

  1. Hi! I am in love with the geometric shapes you used to overlay this invite! I’m very curious…how did you make it?

    Keep up the great blogging work! You’re a really neat writer & designer who inspires me. 🙂

    1. Hi Aliyah! Thank you so much! This was a labor of love and I was inspired by a lot of the geometric patterns I’ve seen online these days.

      I found this tutorial online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfiJ7hz734U

      I took the picture of the little girls and used it to create the triangle pattern in photoshop, then used it as an overlay to the original picture to add dimension.

      Hope this helps! Would love to see your work if you use this tutorial also!
