I was so excited to design these invites for my sister and “Baby Bean” (our nickname for her little bundle of joy). We wanted sweet, simple invitations for this baby shower brunch. My sister owns her own sewing business, Little Luvins. So I pulled inspiration for the style and color of the shower invitations from her favorite fabrics. I also decided to use hand-lettering on each piece to create a whimsical, playful look.
Along with the invitation, we included a tiny pocket, containing instructions and a blank library card. The instructions asked each guest to bring a children’s book to help fill Baby Bean’s future library. Guests could fill out the library card and add a special note. It would then double as a gift tag and keepsake for the mom-to-be.
The invitations were printed on Crane’s Lettra® paper by Rise and Shine Letterpress. Their team was fantastic to work with, and the letterpress really brought the design to life.
I ordered envelopes from Paper Presentation and created my own envelope liners to complement the triangles on the invitations. Each envelope was addressed in similar lettering to match the invitations. I ordered a custom “Baby Bean” stamp from Simon’s Stamps for the envelopes, and it was a perfect finishing touch!
