Dimensional Double Parallel Surf-Themed Invitation: 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week's featured format offers a simple way to get some pop and dimension out of a classic double parallel fold. Brought to us by Yorke Printe Shoppe in Lombard, Illinois, this bright and exciting invitation for client MDRT starts with a custom, striped envelope, and ends with a clever pop-up design.
There's even a 3-ply surfboard tipped onto the cover that can be peeled off to reveal a message. We think you'll love this week's surf-themed solution!
