Sculptural Sleeve Mailer: 60-Second Fold of the Week
Unlike the traditional solid cover panel of a sleeve, this invitation for their annual Gala uses a sweeping die cut to "pull back" the edge of the cover and allow a sneak peek at the invitation it holds. Touches of gold foil and a curiously textured red envelope completes the package. Enjoy!
