This book-like Baby Shower Invitation is a story all in itself! But when it’s the first baby in the family, you go all out – especially if your Aunties make stationery for a living!
Ezra’s mother, our sister-in-law, is an avid reader and general fan of childrens’ books, so we chose a book theme to carry through the entire suite. Each page is letterpress printed on soft cotton Crane’s Lettra paper with a quote or sentiment from her favorite stories, words soon to be shared with little Ezra.
The cover is letterpress printed on luxurious Gmund Reaction paper and hand-sewn with grey and white bakers twine. The inside lining is a white embossed wood-grain pattern with a library card that serves as an RSVP card. Turning the page, a book plate attached to the page by metal photo corners beckons the guests to bring their favorite childrens’ book to help build Ezra’s reading library. Details about the shower grace the opposing page, while another favorite quote is printed on the last page.
