pompom flower baby shower invitation
Up next we have a beautiful baby shower invitation for sweet Jill- hosted by her amazing mother and sister (who lives in Belgium!). The sex of the baby isn't known, but Carissa (Jill's sister) knew that she wanted to use tissue poms in the decorations. We came up with a flower that was reminiscent of those those beautiful poofs and added some fun colors to accent everything!
Everything was printed on 140lb cotton rag paper in bone (a soft white) and letterpressed in 3 inks (I think the first order I'm presenting here on the blog!)- a light golden yellow, a fun summer grass-green, and a beautiful dk. aqua/turquoise to match the envelopes.
Oh whats that? Is that a little flower on the envelope? Why yes it is!! It's my new favorite thing to do-- printing on the front of the envelopes, that is! the impression of this little bud blew my mind. Thanks, Gable.
... I may or may not already be attempting to press a little flower or bud on all 600 envelopes I have for my personal and business stationery. Yikes. ;)
