Isabella's Save the Dates

Isabella is having her long-time-waited Batmitzvah at the end of the year so she asked me to design the save the dates for her...

I've know Isabella since she was a little girl as I used to worked with her mom. She would always come to visit at the office and with her younger sister Milla, would hang out around my desk.. as they called it: "the cool desk"... where toys were aloud and of course a drawer full of colorful markets and clay was always available for them :)

I remember when about 3 or 4 year ago the parcel with the poster ordered from UK arrived for Isabella's mom with what would become one of our favorite phrases: " keep calm and carry on". I think that must have made a big impact in Isabella because she learnt the importance of it... and as young as she might seem, she always know when to remind us to "keep calm and carry on"...

So I wasn't surprise when she told me she wanted for her save the dates "keep calm and save the date"... and the color? I didn't need to ask as we both share our love for purple!

I made a digital version to send to her family overseas and a printed one for her school friends and family in Cape Town. A double sided printed card on curious metal paper packed in a hand-made envelope and label with the guests details. I hope you like them
