Ya'll Come Back Now

We love it when we have repeater custom orders. It makes us feel like a distant relative or family friend that gets to catch up every so often and hear what's happening in our clients' lives. More often than not it's a birthday milestone or a new baby that we get to celebrate and it makes us feel privileged to be called to do it time and time again for them.

We hit a new record this past week with a repeat customer. It was the third time we were creating a baby shower invitation for her. But what made it even more special was that the baby shower was for herself! The client's mom was helping with the party details, but Tracie wanted to make sure she we created the invitations. So of course we had to pull out the big guns to make sure her invitation was above and beyond her expectations.

We were told the baby's nursery had creams and browns with touches of pink and we could let our imaginations run wild with the design. The result was this little ditty- girly, graphic flowers with a lovely fabric and stitching detail at the bottom of the invite:


We had originally thought of using pink seersucker fabric for the bottom portion of the card, but were so glad we decided to switch it up last minute for the cream & pink stripe pictured above. It made the design feel a tad more classic and refined.  

We think Tracie will be pleased with the finished product. (If she hasn't seen the spoiler alert picture on Facebook already. Sorry Tracie!)
