Illustrated Retro Invitation and Message Card

This is an invitation set I came up with using a pencil-drawn, retro-style woman, telephone, and illustrated word CAKE. This would be great used for a wedding or bridal shower, bachelorette party, or birthday party. The Invitation comes with a card asking guests to “leave a message” for the guest of honor, whether it be the bride or the birthday gal. These are packaged together in the gray envelopes shown. Take a look…
