A couple of months ago, a friend and past client of mine, Nicole, asked about doing some baby shower invitations for a friend of hers. The expectant couple are huge Brazil soccer fans, and they are having a boy. Nicole was thinking something in the Brazil colors (yellow, green and black) with maybe a soccer ball theme. Whenever I think of soccer fans, I picture them wearing their favorite team's jersey, and the Brazil uniform in particular is really recognizable. I thought it would be cute to make a onesie that looked like the jersey and maybe use the family name on the back. As soon as I started the design, I thought to add the "Jr." and I think it really makes the whole theme work!
As I was wrapping up the design, Nicole asked if I could add the registry information on there somewhere, and I suggested we do a little soccer ball insert. It came out so cute, and get this--it fits perfectly wedged into the folds of the envelope! I can't believe I've never noticed this handy little feature in Paper Source envelopes!
I am kinda obsessed with how this came out, and I cannot wait to do more teams and different sports. Up next: Red Sox and Patriots (shocking, I know). Planning a baby shower for a big sports fan? I'd love to design one for you! This Brazil design is up on the Etsy shop, but as always it's just a sample of what we can do. I'd love to work with you!
