boxed invitations

These are my newest creation, boxed invitations!!  These were designed for a little girl's first birthday, which is around the 4th of July. I was asked to design an over the top invitation and incorporate a princess theme (specifically using a castle with fireworks behind it)  and the colors pink and silver. And this is what I came up with!

These perfect little pink boxes are so fun! Won't recipients be so surprised when they get this invitation in the mail!!

I wrapped the invitation with some glittery tissue paper,  a whimsical reminiscent of the sheet of tissue that used to come with wedding invitations, and I  secured it with a      monogrammed seal

This is a little fuzzy, but I accented the front of the invitation with ribbon, that also holds the directions card in place on the inside, some crystals where the fireworks are shooting off, and added some shimmer & glitter to the fireworks and initials.
