We’ve always been a huge fan of illustrator and calligrapher Stephanie Fishwick‘s charming (remember these custom crests?) and whimsical designs. This year she has really outdone herself with her “Demi Couture” line and we couldn’t wait to share her new work with you, just in time for the holidays…
Stephanie was inspired by the quirky French short film Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, as well as that infamous party scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She told us “I was making a card for my own holiday party and realized these ideas could be fun for a small collection. I’ve been really into surrealist cinema this Fall and I think that came through in the invitations; sort of a riff on quirky ’60s dinner parties. The holidays are all about opulence and luxury so they are a nod to that but with a fun twist.” The Christmas cards, invitations and even elegant little RSVP cards are decorated in a mix of ornate jewels, gorgeous botanicals, and exotic animals. Plus no matter which design you like most, each features her signature vibrant colors and beautiful lettering.
It’s really hard to choose a favorite, but if I had to choose just one, I think it would be “Ixia”, below! Those vines, and that calligraphy, so beautiful!
Any of the designs can be used as your holiday cards, or as invitations to your upcoming holiday events, and are available from $150. If you’re stationery obsessive like me and interested in all the lovely details of a suite, there’s even the option of including envelopes with your return address.
The holiday deadline for ordering is December 15th, so you still have some time to decide your favorite! Be sure to let us know if you order one of these lovely designs, and tag us on Instagram at @snippetandink!
