I promised I’d update soon, and here it is! My husband gave in and unearthed the camera from the piles of boxes in the garage, and I’m excited to show off this invitation.
Erin is a dear friend of mine whose daughter Sophia is due in December. I was so thrilled to be able to do the invitations for her upcoming shower! She chose one of my favorite color schemes (pink and brown) and let me be creative with the design.
Inspiration comes from the strangest places sometimes. I opened the trunk of my car and saw a box of leftover decorations from my wedding – these cute little pink and brown birds that I used to decorate my manzanita placecard trees:
(Yes, I know my wedding was almost a year ago, and there is no excuse to still have decorations in my trunk.)
But with that in my head, I created this invitation:
The invitation panel was printed on an ivory metallic linen cardstock and mounted to a 5×7 piece of pink metallic cardstock. I was worried it would be sparkle overload, but it’s lovely in person, especially with the matching envelope.
I’m adding it to my Etsy shop and offering customization of colors as well as text, so the mommies-to-be who are having boys won’t feel left out.
Erin, it was a joy to create these for you, and I’m looking forward to meeting Sophia soon!
