Introducing “Cactus Getaway”

  A Design by Twinkle & Toast

“My style has been described as very “California” and I wanted to design something that reflected that. I also love the idea of taking a historically traditional piece of an invitation suite (the wax seal) but using an unexpected design you typically wouldn’t expect to see in this medium. I was inspired by Southern California landscapes and came up with this cactus illustration with desert florals.”
