As you very well know, my big sis has a bun in the oven. When an event like this comes around, I can’t help but get creative and get involved, whether is be designing a nursery or helping to throw a baby shower. I’m basically a wannabe Martha Stewart, but without the criminal record (zing!). So, for my sister’s upcoming baby shower, I thought I’d take a stab at designing some invitations. I’m by no means a graphic designer – I’m limited to my minimal knowledge of photoshop and the free brushes I can find on the internet (anyone want to give me Illustrator? teach me the program? Anyone?). But, I digress. The whole bird theme seems to be popping up everywhere in baby land. Even ol’ Martha featured some bird themed shower ideas on her website. With the fun words like “hatching” and “nesting”, the bird theme really is a win win.
While thinking about a bird themed shower, I just so happened to come upon the most perfect invitation during a little light blog stalking. I had to borrow OhBrooke’s text design for my invitations (because it was downright perfect), but decided to try my hand at creating a different design to fit my sister’s taste. Behold, Option numero uno.
Does this invite make you wanna pop on over for some yummy treats on a saturday morning, or would you prefer something a bit different, like option numero dos?
I would love love love some feedback on these (like “ew that’s gross, change the colors” or “oh my goodness, you’re brilliant!”) so drop me a comment and let me know your thoughts!
