Now that you’ve seen Rachel’s maternity photos, the next glimpse into the shower would be the baby shower invitations!
I drew inspiration from Mary Blair’s work on the credits from Cinderella and then applied Rachel’s nursery’s color palette with its pinks, peaches, and mint greens.
The “Once Upon A Time” mark was handwritten as well as Rachel’s name, then a combination of two other typefaces, a modern serif and a medieval display text completed the invite.
This really was a work of love, and definitely one of my favorite invitations yet!
In addition to the invitation, I created a bookmark with Rachel’s favorite verse, Jeremiah 29:11, as the shower favors. Along with a print to go along with it for the nursery as well.
All of these pieces of the invitation can be bought in my Etsy shop: Your New Friend Sam.
In addition to the invite pieces—and to go along with the storybook theme—I created a custom bookplate stamp for Amelia’s baby books.
So many fun projects were created and designed for Rachel’s shower! I can not wait to show you rest of the photos from the day of… tomorrow!
