Amélie’s Baptism Card
This lovely and chubby baby is Amélie, her parents asked me for an invitation card to give the family, the day of her Baptism. They told me they wanted a few lines of a poetry to appear on the card, but other then that, I had complete free will. Since poetry mentioned bees and flowers, I decided on a floral theme and a palette of delicate colors such as green and pink. The sealing wax stamp has a lavender stem as a detail, and keeps the pink cotton ribbon around the invitation closed. The original portrait of the girl was then given to the parents as a souvenir of the day.
I’m really happy with the result: my intention was to make a very simple invitation that the guests would have liked to keep over time, to remember Amélie and the beautiful day spent.
