This invitation packet arrives wrapped in onionskin and bound with silver twine. The grouping of cards (below) -- including invitation, reply, and directions -- is unified not by a single motif but by the cards' overall design. The shapes and size of the icons, the font type and color, and the paper stock and color all clearly work with one another, and are used for the thank-you note, to be sent later. One way to choose motifs for a wardrobe like this is to use icons that identify the purpose of each card, such as an illustration of a chapel at the top of the invitation and a car to mark the card with directions.
