Each Thursday we revisit a previous Hot Card that deserves a second glance. This sophisticated B'nai Mitzvah invitation, originally posted on 5/28/14, is (once again!) from our friend Stacey at Creative Expressions in East Rockaway, New York. The gleaming white litho NYC skyline jumps off of the deep black paper, beckoning guests to what was surely a night to remember in the Big Apple. A custom liner completes this sleek, contemporary masterpiece.

Blake It 'Til You Make It
Our retailers often customize designs in such a beautifully ingenious way that it makes us stop and say, "Why didn't we think of that?!" For Blake's eye-popping Bar Mitzvah invitation, our friend Mickey at Sidelines in Rockville, MD applied a bold, masculine palette to #B534 in our Mitzvah V book, resulting in a true work of invitation art that belongs as much in a museum as it does a mailbox!

Is sorcery afoot? While it may seem like magic, Luscious Verde's ability to artfully translate its famous die-cut designs into flat printing is pure design genius.
Here at LVC we are passionate about bringing our Luscious designs to events with a wide range of budgets. If your customer is interested in our famous die-cut patterns but is looking for a lower price point, consider working with our talented design team to capture the essence of these pieces through the more cost effective flat printing. Let's take a look at two gorgeous examples utilizing this technique:
Our wildly popular Aztec invitations have helped set the tone for events across the country. In order to mimic the luxurious feel of the original die-cut piece from our Mitzvah V album (shown in Violet in the images above), try printing both the positive and negative areas of the border on White Smooth paper (shown in Fuschia ink). This technique allows for practically limitless color combinations, and, along with the invitation's text, is only one print run. A contrasting base layer adds weight and visual interest to the card.
Art Deco Invitation
This invitation from our Wedding IV album is one of my all-time favorite Luscious Verde designs. The original version (shown on the left in the images above) features an intricate die-cut pattern fit for Mr. Gadsby himself. Through the talent of LVC's invitationeers, we were able to capture the roaring luxury of this piece through a flat-printed one-layer card (shown on the right). By utilizing black ink for both the negative portion of the lace design and the text we get an elegant twist on the original. Voila!
