Wedding + Baseball?





When my sister first approached me about having a baseball-themed wedding, I have to admit I was a bit dumbfounded. I thought, "how the heck can I make a classy invitation that has baseball involved?" Well, there is nothing like a challenge to bring out the creativity in someone. I think she is as happy as I am with the way the invitation turned out. That's a home-run in my book!

No problem, Nat - they were fun to do and I can't imagine letting anyone else do my little sister's invitations! I'll send you the bill soon ;)

Those are super cute!!! I love that the stitching on the baseball is really the leaves/stems of the flowers on the inside. Ingenious!

Thanks! When I first thought of it, I wasn't even sure it would work. I'm so glad it did.

Oh my word! I love this design!!! It's so fun and creative! You are awesome! Can I ask if you used a die cut for the circle? Or something else? Thanks for sharing!

See this post here http://illustrationplusletterpress.blogspot.com/2008/03/circle-die.html
to see the die cut we used and an explanation. We made save-the-date coasters for my sister's wedding first and used the same die for this invitations. Thanks for the nice compliment.

So adorable! The stems becoming the ball, that is amazing. How did you think it up?? Have you done "trick" fold out invitations like this before in other themes? And are you from http://www.gatheringguide.com/ec/invitations_design.html? When the time comes for my invitations I'd love some like that.

Melanie, thanks for the compliment. I'm not sure how i thought of it, I just know i wanted it to be pretty and feminine, but still get the baseball theme in the forefront. I've never heard of the gathering guide. Thanks for the info. I'm working on a few wedding designs to put up for sale on our etsy site. Check back for those in a few months!

Is there any way I could order these? I can't find any invitations that Ilike, besides these.
