I was asked to create a swanky, fun, and festive invitation for my client’s 60th birthday bash which will be taking place the day after Christmas so that out-of-state relatives would be able to celebrate both the holidays and this special birthday with her. She loves glitz, bling, martinis, and Las Vegas so we created a modern martini glass filled with colorful ornamental baubles accented in silver glitter. This double layer pocketfold was created using metallic papers for that extra touch of shimmer. Coordinating response cards featuring a single ornament and a glittered seal to fasten the pocketfold closed finished off this invitation suite.
Thank you Connie for allowing me to design such a fun invitation for your special occasion, and a ‘Happy Birthday’ to you!
