I drew a simple line drawing of the strawberries and used a vintage color scheme, both directions were inspired from the photograph.
The return address is printed on the left hand side of the invitation and wraps around the envelope.
As a designer I love a complete design experience from the outside in. For example, coordinating colored envelopes with the address label and opening up to the invitation. At the actual birthday party you could carry on the entire idea with the vintage color scheme, a coordinating birthday banner and cupcake toppers (strawberry cupcakes of course), favor tags with strawberry candy or strawberry jam… I could go on and on.
ah. I love this.
(and my husband just caught me smiling at my computer like a little school girl with a crush… haha… hilarious.)
