Milkmaid Press is the charming stationery company of my friend Kristen Nichols, and when she offered to design an invitation suite based on one of my inspiration boards, I couldn’t possibly say no! Imagine my surprise when she turned out a delightful design that works with a huge range of wedding styles, simply by customizing the color and backer pattern…

Board #467: Bold As Love with yellow floral.

Board #524: Southern Comfort with blue damask.

Board #556: Pretty in Peach with pink confetti.

Board #545: Romantic Early Spring with moss floral.

Board #490: Poppy & Mint with mint diagonal stripe.

Okay, as if I didn’t love it already, but then she went ahead and named it Kathryn. Which pretty much made my week! AND. Kristen is giving away a $250 gift certificate to FOUR lucky Snippet & Ink readers! Just leave a comment on this post with which Milkmaid Press design is your favorite. You have until Thursday, May 17th, 2012 at 5:00PM PDT to enter, and the randomly selected winners will be notified by email.

    I am smitten with the Faux Bois design. It is a great representation of our style and of the city we love and will be married in, Portland (or Stumptown)!

    My favorite is the “Kathryn.” Our wedding is actually based on Snippet & Ink’s Board #187: Champagne & Dessert and I think the backer for Romantic Early Spring would work perfectly!

    I’d choose the carribean palm thank you notes. They would be perfect since we have a honeymoon registry and we’re going to Turks and Caicos! I like the Kathryn,too. It’s very elegant. And the wildflower. Ok, I like them all.

    I’m torn, because I’m equally in love with the Wildflowers Invitations and the Rustique in mint invitations…I think I’d have the choose the former though, because it’s so colorful!

    I like the Candy Swirls Holiday card/announcement. I think it would make a beautiful post-wedding announcement card, and also be nice for thank you notes. I like that there are 4 color options or for $50 more, you can select custom colors.

    It’s a tie between Oiseaux and Rustique. They both look so elegant but like someone had just invited you to a backyard tea party at the same time! (And the sample fonts are just scrumptious!)
