Invitations


First and foremost, they needed to be cute and they needed to be bright. They needed to reflect the joy of a new little boy arriving soon. They needed to have some kind of animal depicted to reflect my sister being a veterinarian. And lastly, they needed to be flat enough to mail mostly cross country.

I started with this cute digital puppy image from TiffanyDoodles, added the text, printed four to a sheet and adhered them a quarter each to red, blue, yellow or green cardstock with staples. I finished with either a rhinestone or a dot of bright paint for the puppy's tag.

Tiffany is debuting three new images this week, here's a sneak of the first image. Pretty, right?

  3. What perfect shower invites for a Vet! You are clever to leave the image un-colored and just add some bling for his tag. I rarely think to do that, but it looks so good. I like the bright CS underneath and along the edges too.

  4. So cute and so perfect for a little boy's impending arrival. I agree with Dana - I like how you've left the image uncoloured and just added that tiny bit of bling to the collar. It looks so clean and crisp.
