Nested “Triple Envelope” Iron Cross Invitation

Get ready to be completely “wow-ed” by this gorgeous, envelope-style pointed iron cross format that features three nesting pieces that hold a foil-stamped invitation to a special exhibit called “Invitation Only.” The event was hosted by Clampitt Paper of Dallas, and featured the best in invitation design. This spectacular piece was a “dream team” collaboration between Matchbox Studio (design), Texas Graphic Resource (print production), and MetroVCS (finishing). It’s a must-see!!
