Handmade Personalized Invitations

Gert’s aunt is celebrating her 80th birthday this year. That’s a whole lot of candles! Her actual birthday was several months ago, but she wanted to invite the whole family to a fancy restaurant and it got a bit tricky to get everyone to come because of vacations and other various reasons. So, the one date that seemed to work for most people was August 31st.

She originally purchased invitation cards at a local store, which she simply had to fill out (such as the date, address, etc). But then she wasn’t happy about how it looked, so I offered to give it a shot. She was quite excited about having something personalized and was keen on adding her own touches. One requirement was to add a picture of her as a small child, and she got to decide about the whole text.

Because of her old childhood picture inside, I decided to go for a total vintage look.

She absolutely loved the final result; which is quite an achievement because she’s one tough lady to please lol She definitely knew what she wanted, so I’m glad it met her expectations. It’s not always easy to interpret what people envision in their heads. So yay for another card success!
