After some great feedback on my sister’s shower invitations, I decided to take the plunge and print these suckers out. I made a few minor tweets tweaks on the text sizes/colors, but overall it seems that the birdie invitation design was a winner from the get go. These were printed on simple white card stock – turns out you can only buy card stock in massive economy packs, so I have enough to get me through the next 50 years.
I decided to use a corner rounder to soften up the edges a bit, making it more appropriate for a baby shower. Sharp edges + baby = bad idea. I can relate, since I cracked my head open as a kid on the corner of a coffee table. Ow! Did you catch that bird reference – cracked? Yeah, there’s more where that came from.
Since the invitations were brightly colored, I decided to have a little fun and forgo the standard white envelopes and pick up some punchy colored ones from my favorite Charlotte stationary store, Papitre. (unfortunately, no website – boo!) I had my mind set on some cool blue envelopes to mimic the blue in baby Greenlee’s nursery, but couldn’t help myself when I saw the rockin orange envelopes. Why not do half and half? Now all I have to do is address these birdies and send them on their merry way. :)
