Sneak Peek: Peter Pan Invitations

Got the invitations out and into the mail today for Jude’s Peter Pan party at the end of the month!

I shot this photo against dark green felt, but the felt didn’t show up. I’m planning on cutting up the felt into small leaves to sew onto Jude’s Peter Pan costume pants.

I love the way these turned out. My original concept was something sketchy and hand-drawn in feel, and dramatic like a vintage movie poster or a simple book cover — and I feel like these answer those demands perfectly.  One of my favorite things is the Peter Pan hat that we got Jude at Disneyland this past summer. He’s so stinkin’ cute in it with that jaunty red feather – it’s the perfect symbol of Peter Pan.

So I knew that it was going to be the right image when I was doing sketches of it the other night and Jude saw it and shrieked, “My Peter Pan party!!! That’s my party!”  Bingo.

The hat sketch and matching text is paired with Mrs Eaves, a simple yet pretty font that looks so bookish to me. It reminds me of old-fashioned book typography.

The envelopes are Paper Source’s kraft paper envelopes and the return address labels are also their printable circle labels in white. The envelopes and invitations are extra-large, adding to their dramatic quality.

The labels come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are perfect for return address labels, decorations, you name it.  These are the 2 1/4″ circular stickers. I love that you can get them in any of Paper Source’s signature colors – there’s not an ugly one in the bunch. Would somebody please order some invitations from me in the new Peacock blue color so I can get some of it???  🙂

Can’t wait for the big day!
