The envelope please….

So now that these little envelopes have arrived at their destinations, I will blog their content.I designed my birthday invites. It’s not a swanky affair, but I think I would be remiss if I didn’t make and mail invites.

Here they are:

The front

Removing the ribbon band…

The Big Reveal

First panel

The full invite

I had purchased the art previously for my Wedding Save-the-Dates and didn’t end up using it. I was hoping for an opportunity to use it and here it is. The colors were chosen as a personal design challenge. I have not worked with purple and plum yet. I am always asked to work with bright tropical colors or traditional, classic colors. I really wanted to move outside of my box. I also designed and assembled the enclosure the invite is attached to. I had fun putting these together and I think my recipients enjoyed receiving them.
