Baby Pierson

I had the privilege to design an order of 75 custom baby shower invitations for soon-to-be baby boy Pierson and his parents, Miranda and Nick. I was excited when I saw my first photo of their choice of bedding, "Team Safari" by Lambs & Ivy. The ideas started forming right away and I was excited to get started! Here was my inspiration photo:

Here is the finished design! Shown is a 5x7 invitation and our basic envelope with a single stamp on the inner flap.

A lot of love, time and work went in to creating 75 copies of this design.
Each piece was cut from a hand-drawn stencil and detailed by hand-drawn details such as the lion's face, the football lacing and the alligator's eye and star.

Next we hand tied each set and attached a backed "Handmade by Rosalie" tag.

Finally, we framed a special copy for Miranda and Nick. I know from being a mom myself that having a framed version of something as special as your baby's shower invitation is a cherished memento. Every order placed through Handmade by Rosalie comes with an included framed copy of your special design!

We loved working on this project and learned many valuable lessons about perfecting our craft. We hope you give us the opportunity to show you how special a handmade invitation can be!
