Liv’s 2nd Birthday: Invitations

We recently sent out Liv’s birthday invitations and I must say, I’m pretty smitten with how they turned out. They are both pretty and super simple, and that is what I love most!

After falling in love with these wedding invitations (which I also pinned here), I sought to recreate that beautiful ombre effect on my own. But after much deliberation on how to make my own hand-dipped paper or some sort of watercolor background image to print out, I began perusing Etsy and was lucky enough to discover this talented artist. In the end, I was so excited to have partnered with Katrina on this little party detail, and the nominal fee of $12 for several proofs and the pdf to print out the invites myself was well worth it.

I cropped a favorite photo of Liv, applied a slight sepia effect to it and printed out a dozen or so as well. Love, love a thick white border around b&w or sepia photos!

My inspiration for the party thus far? Besides this little post round-up here, lots of pink and coral ribbon plus the translucent die-cut butterflies left over from this project.

    Love the invites! If I’ve learned anything over the last couple years, it’s when to admit when it’s time to ask someone else to step in. Looks like you found the perfect match for making the background…and that picture is just too adorable.
