birthday invite

Lucas is not turning one just yet, but it’s coming quickly! He’ll be one at the end of April and we’re having a small family get-together to celebrate.

I saw a lovely invite on Pinterest, but unfortunately I couldn’t locate the actual image. I really liked the style and the circular image in the ‘O’, so I decided to make my own version.

I used Photoshop to create a postcard-sized canvas, and this free blackboard download as the background. The fonts are Sketch Block, Pacifico and Nevis. I chose a photo of Lucas with a good smiling face and cut it out using the elliptical tool.

I chose the red/white/blue for the ‘ONE’ as we’re huge francophiles in this house! I’m planning a loose French theme for the party, hopefully with a croquembouche and macaroons (good intentions…).

I liked doing this and I’m really happy with the result. I’d like to find more simple design projects.
