Man Men Style


Here are two wedding cards created for Artfull Crafts. In classic 1950s graphic style using Echo Park's Yours Truly collection. That Man Men influence shows through strongly : from the sharp suits to the houndstooth and pin-stripes.


Since the images and colours are so striking, I kept the design itself relatively clean and simple. The only embellishments are a heart sticker and some crystal rhinestones (on the ring). By no means CAS cards but close enough for me.
