A New Little Baby ~ the shower

Weddings and babies are just the most exciting thing on my radar lately! And all I want to do is letterpress anything related to it. Back in February I was busy planning a baby shower for my sister-in-law, Dani, which of course included letterpress invites! I decided to go with a postcard to save a little bit on the cost of envelopes, but also because I thought it would be totally awesome! The blue was bright and fun, and I experimented with tiny dots and lines. The tiny dots were a bit small in hind-sight and next time I try that I think I'll make them a bit larger and further spaced apart, so that they're visible. Also I totally figured out that when printing a flood of colour (like that mega big ribbon), and thin type is going to look even thinner, so it's just a mental note for next time to make it a thin lines a bit bolder. 

Anyway, you live, you learn. I'm just happy that I got to design and print these, so even though they're not "perfect", they're fine by me. 

On another note, this little baby that was on his way, is officially here, and I'm a proud new auntie!!! He is beyond adorable, and of course I had to snap a few photos, which you can see here

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
