The top announcement is for my friend Elizabeth who wanted a modern, clean announcement. I created some heft and a sense of luxury by using layers. The printed photographs (done beautifully by White Rabbit Studios) were layered on top of a thick, light blue cut of cardstock. The back of the cardstock was printed with a beautiful prayer Elizabeth provided. The announcement was tucked into a thick navy envelope lined with gray paper. A custom wrap address label completed it.
Hallie is a dear friend of my sister. I was commissioned by another of their friends—and one of my all-time favorite clients and friends—Andrea to create a shower invitation. The direction was colorful with a bit a whimsy. Again, I used layers to add a bit of luxury, attaching the invite onto a pink backing card. A pearlescent pink liner in dove grey envelopes with a printed added some sparkle.
The final announcement is for another great friend, Courtney. We customized an existing design of mine, the Vintage Ornament Baby Announcement, to feature some of her beautiful baby photos and add some pizazz with some iridescent glitter. You really can't tell from the photo, but there are delicate tendrils of glitter embellishing some of the ornaments on the announcement that's just gorgeous. I just love how these turned out.
