We started last week off with moving announcements, and today we’re helping to start the new week with a modern graduation announcement from Karly at Sweet Beaker. Karly worked with the family of a recent high school graduate to come up with a modern-meets-classic announcement design incorporating a modified crest and the high school colors of navy and white. Fun!
From Karly: At the time I was doing research for the design of these announcements, the royal wedding was just around the corner and I came across an article about Kate Middleton’s new coat of arms — ahh! Hold the presses! Instant inspiration! Several sketches later, a simple monogrammed crest emerged, which can also be applied to other stationery extensions (thank you notes!).
We opted for a split layout with pertinent event information on the left and a pattern on the right with matching envelope liner. The versatile pattern is great all by itself, but also allows space for Jordan to attach a senior photo to the right of the announcement. School colors, a little hint of silver, a crest, pattern and optional photo = success! Such a fun project, through and through.
So cool – thanks Karly!
