Getting Crafty: Bridal Shower Invitation Design


This weekend I will be getting crafty for a while and printing/assembling bridal shower invitations from my Etsy shop!

The invite was originally for a friend's surprise birthday party, but a new client requested I alter it for a bridal shower and I'm very excited to see the final product!

The client and I decided on these fabulous green metallic envelopes from
I am looking forward to having some time in my hobby room to get this fun project done!!

What crafty projects will you be working on this weekend?

    1. Oh yay, good for you!!

      I have always done a little freelance design but now I'm trying to amp up my client base (via Etsy) since Billy is on the way - extra "fun money" is always a good thing!!
