Card of the Week—Baby Shower Invitation

Today I wanted to share my newest design—my baby shower invitation. I’ve been getting lots of emails from women, via Etsy, asking for the large single sheet invitations. I’ve always felt that the digital invitations were a little bit impersonal but after making this I’ve completely changed my mind about them. I still put my all into making these and the final product makes me all excited inside.

I designed every single part of this invitation from the banner, the chevron background, the blue panels, and the arrangement of the party details. Then I added my personal touch with the baby blue satin ribbon. Once they were printed out I felt it still needed something else and I tried adding stamps, a monogram, and the ribbon—and the ribbon was perfect! Next I used a thick pearl cardstock to add a border and I also used it to hide the back of the ribbon in order to give it a flawless finish. I couldn’t be happier with these invitations I've created on my PC. I think this is definitely the start of something new for me and I couldn't be more excited. 
I've also created these in different colors; however, I’m going to test the first one on my website to see how it sells and if it does well I’m going to upload the other colors as too. Here are the digital images of the other colors I’ll have available soon (minus the water marks).
I’m so excited to venture into the world of digital art (I never thought I’d say that) and I’m planning on taking some classes to perfect my knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator—I can’t wait!
