Baby Shower Invitation for My Lovely Sister
After much hope and anticipation (and yes, some begging) I am finally going to be an Aunt! I could not be more excited for my sister and brother-in-law and their latest and greatest addition to their family, not to mention Grandmas and Great Grandmas-to-be. They are having a boy. Sweet Baby Mey, as the are calling him in their blog, is due August 16, 2010. You know what that means… design time!
Being of a younger generation, not many of my friends have made the move towards parenthood and honestly I think I have been to two baby showers in my life. But that has not protected my eyes from all of the unsightly and cheese-filled baby shower invitations I have seen.
I was put to task to design an invitation that was fun and cute and pretty much gender neutral since Alana and Ashton are not into the gender norms of pink=girl and boy=blue. They wanted something that was just them. Simple, natural and beautiful.
I designed this to be able to fit into a standard #10 envelope to save on the envelopes themselves and postage. We’re hoping to find a recycled paper stock that gives it a natural and organic look.
Can’t wait for the shower and to celebrate the new member of our family!
