A favorite client of mine who loves to throw festive parties asked me to design a unique invitation for her son’s medical school graduation. She’s seen pics of some of the boxed invites on this blog and was interested in having me create something similar.
She found a bottled prescription invitation online that she wanted to include. After a few measurements, it was determined that a cookie from It’s a Mary Cake would be the perfect accompaniment — in the shape of a medical scrub no less! Yellow shredded paper padded the box and kept the cookie from breaking.
To stay on theme, I hand painted the box with a stethoscope that curved around the edges and ended up appropriately with a heart. I then hand lettered the mailing addresses in dark blue to match the theme.
The ‘prescriptions’ from Hello Cupcake added a special touch and included a list of side effects: continuous laughter, excessive smiling and wonderful memories. How cute is that?
