Lisa had the idea to use a children's mitten as the visual for the state of Michigan. I found the perfect image of a hand-knit mitten and placed a heart near Detroit where they live.
There will be stripes and polka dots in the baby's nursery, and those patterns and shapes were brought into the invitations with a diagonal striped pattern and lavender paper wrap behind the round "Made in Michigan" seal.
Two enclosure cards were included with the invitations. A lavender card with a poem and request to bring a book in lieu of a card, framed by dots and stripes. Also, a soft gray card with a custom map design and directions to the baby shower location.
Light pink envelopes were addressed in a coordinating design
And to complete the look, custom "It's a girl!" postage stamps
