The invitation is a double faced greeting card, decorated with rose pearlescent card and Vivi Gade design rosette paper strips (the Skagen series). Wooden heart decorations are added and a piece of natural hemp is threaded through the holes made with a Screw Punch. The menu card is made from Color Bar card and decorated in the same fashion as the invitation whilst the place card is an assembled rosette.
