Last Spring, when my dear friend Annie told me that she had to get First Communion invitations out for her son pronto, I offered to help. We came up with the idea for her to take a profile picture of her son and use that as a silhouette, which is much more personalized than the generic boy/girl silhouettes you see on traditional First Communion invitations. We had great fun designing this together and Annie was an absolute delight to work with. I die cut Cole's silhouette and used a backing layer to let that image pop through. I lined the envelopes with a handmade paper with a coordinating gray chevron pattern, and made custom return address labels to finish it off. These came out so amazingly beautiful. I usually don't get this excited about paper goods that are not letterpress printed, but the way the silhouette lays on the two papers adds a dimension similar to what I love about letterpress.
