Write one to your soon-to-be or consider giving these as unique wedding invitations, favors or thank you cards to guests!  I mean really, who wouldn’t love to receive one of these darling treasures?

Here’s how it works:  You write a letter and it is transcribed onto tiny stationary with a magical transcription device.  The letter then goes into a see-through folded coin case and is packaged up with a magnifying glass in a larger glassine envelope, finished off with a wax seal.  It is put in a sturdy mailer for shipping.”Leafcutter Designs

…It’s What A Girl Wants!

I’ve come across these delightfully pretty note cards by newly discovered designer Inslee today and couldn’t resist sharing them with you.  If you’re stuck on ideas for your bridesmaids gifts, check out her fabulously stylish collection!  

For many of the designs, you can choose from personalized, flat or folded.  Wouldn’t these also make for adorable bridal shower invites or thank you cards?  Take a look at just a few of my absolute favorites

“Parasol”

Her gorgeous 2009 Calendar would also make a wonderful gift!

 Though designer Inslee recently graduated just last year after majoring in studio art and art history, she has been drawing ever since she was a little girl.  After she graduated, her sketches really took off and became a hit! 

I began sketching ballerinas and brides which eventually led to my love of sketching all things fashionable and elegant. My sketching moves as quickly as the ever-changing styles of the moment in my attempts to capture the glamour and beauty of couture.” – Inslee
