Invitations Galore!

I know it has been a while since my last post...but I have been working like crazy doing multiple freelance projects. I have been working on websites, a logo, and (the subject of this post) invitations! I quickly found out that I really like designing announcements and invitations. Usually they accompany a happy event, and I love channeling that happiness and excitement into my designs.

Here are some examples of things that I have done recently:

This is the invitation I designed for my sister's bridal shower. I wanted it to look classy, but not something you could buy from any store. I right aligned the text for a bit of a unique look, and chose the hand-made paper from hundreds of options a a local art store.

The text is printed on vellum, so the patterned paper shows through. No two invitations are exactly alike!

This is an announcement that I designed for a friend, isn't her kid adorable?

And finally, this is the invitation I designed for my sister's bachelorette party. I printed it on pearl paper, the subtle shine really makes it look great.
