Baby Shower Invites

Over the next two weeks, my brain is going to be buzzing with all things baby boy. Not for my own sake (thank goodness) but for my sister-in-law. She is currently expecting her first child, Anthony, who is due to grace us with his presence in early January. Two months ago, I began researching a fun design for her shower invitations that coordinated with the colors she and her husband have chosen for their new nursery: black, white and blue. Below is the design that I came up with which is printed on 100# white linen paper. Each invitation was hand trimmed with rounded corners and backed with coordinating scrapbook paper. I chose white linen envelopes which were custom printed, and the invitation suite was finished off with a matching envelope wrapper. The illustration on the invite was hand done by me, and as an extra layer of personalization, I used the mommy-to-be's profile to create the silhouette of the woman. I had a great time designing these, and I'm having an even better time designing two showers that coordinate with this theme.

B is for Baby and Boy and Bundles of Joy :)
