Watercolor Escort Cards

31 May

Are you “oo-ing” and “ah-ing” yet?  This beautiful array of dyed paper cards is from this romantic wedding [photography by Jose Villa].  They were used as escort cards [calligraphy by neithersnow].  I particularly love the visual effect – a splash of watercolor.

As much as I may love the idea, the DIY tutorial is a little involved.  See for yourself.  Though relatively inexpensive and easy, it was an idea I filed away as “whimsical and elegant,” and “if only I had more time.”  You can imagine my delight when I read this post on Once Wed yesterday – a DIY tutorial for paint chip escort cards!

Watercolor effect?  Check.  Fast and easy?  Check.  Inexpensive?  Free!  I think we’ll do this for our rehearsal dinner – maybe shades of white, ivory, and ecru and pinned to a board like this one from Pottery Barn:
