Chalkboard Baby Shower Invitations

I've designed a lot of different projects for Amanda over the years, and was thrilled when she asked me to design her sister's baby shower invitations.  She wanted a chalkboard background with a fun use of typography and also wanted to incorporate different pastel colors to keep it gender neutral.

Here's what we came up with:

We included a small business-card sized insert asking guests to bring a book instead of a card to help build up a library for baby:

For the shower, she had a tree illustration and asked everyone to leave a finger print with a shade of green ink to create a cute family tree for the nursery -- here's the sign I created:

Favors were small jars filled with pastel M&M's. The jars had a chalkboard label on the front, so she attached a stick of chalk plus my favor tags on each:

 Finally, she had cards numbered 1 - 25 and had guests pick a card at random. If the card you chose was "3", then you'd write a note that the baby would open and read on their 3rd birthday. Such a great idea!
