Oscar night paper inspiration*

Watching the Oscars last Sunday a definite trend was apparent – that is the striking, glittery, embellished, metallic, black, gold and graphite look. I couldn’t help thinking of some of my favourite specialty papers out there which would carry this trend beautifully into wedding stationery.

Any of these below swatches would be amazing for an elegant, formal, “Gatsby” style invite… love it! And, how perfect of a match is the last swatch of Chiyogami paper to Stacy Keibler’s gown?
