Custom baby shower invitations are probably one of my most favorite type of prints to make. The expecting mama is calm, relaxed and excited to be pampered. The hostess is genuinely generous + thoughtful with all of the details. So, the "client" is just a dream to work with. This particular baby shower suite was created for my very best friend. She's pregnant with identical twin boys and that in of itself is a reason to make this special and unique.
I was told "navy + blue - run with it!". At first, I wanted to create something very boy-ish like dinosaurs, trucks or animal theme. But on second thought, the idea of creating around "2" was graphically more exciting and elegant for the expecting Mama.
Using "Oh Baby Baby! We're having 2", "Two heartbeats instead of one" and my favorite "twice the love" were all the sayings we played with for the twinsies. All of these were sprinkled throughout the suite from the front, back and envelope seals.
The main navy and greenery elements were watercolored and applied to the envelope liner, the main invite and the seals. Giving the entire suite a thoughtful and well curated aesthetic.
I LOVE papers and experimenting with different paper types. Since I had full creative freedom on this project I knew I had to select a unique paper I've never tried before. I purchased this from Digital Lizard Printing. It's their Komodo paper with a black core insert. Luckily, the black core pulled itself off as a true navy being adjacent to other navy watercolor details.
Custom baby shower invitations are a unique way to put that special touch + thoughtfulness to the event. You can use similar graphics at the actual shower and it's a sure fire way to make that Mama-to-Be feel extra loved (maybe even twice the love!)
