Do you like bold colors? If so, then you probably surround yourself with décor in colors like red accented with swaths of black. Maybe you dress in bold shades as well. Why not extend your love of strong hues to your correspondence, and combine it with your love of family? Plan a birthday or anniversary party featuring daringly powerful colors, and afterwards send your guests ladybug thank you photo cards, ensuring they will never forget the event or you and your beloved family.
Ladybugs, or ladybirds as they are called in some regions, not only are naturally red and black, but they also are pretty tenacious critters. Technically, they are not insects at all; they are beetles. While they may look charming in shades of red and reddish-orange with black spots, they can certainly defend themselves. First, they taste horrible to predators, and their bright colors indicate this. Second, when threatened, they can release a nasty orange chemical from their joints to further deter anything threatening them. They can play dead, waiting for a marauder to leave, and they also can grasp and pinch with their mandibles.
Take inspiration from the ladybug’s helpful yet strong nature, for your next party, and feature the combination of black and red, perhaps with touches of white or cream, in your décor as well as your outfit. If the party is for your daughter, if young enough she may even want to dress as a ladybug. Printed plates and napkins will successfully carry on the theme at the table. After the celebration is over, keep the theme alive by sending guests ladybug thank you photo cards. Picture cards personalize your message and can feature a photo of the entire family or just the birthday girl or boy.
Nature is full of beauty and mystery, and you can’t go wrong if you decorate using natural colors and shapes as your models. The good news is that just about every shade and hue on the color wheel can be found in nature, so whatever your tastes, you can satisfy them while keeping it natural.
"The designers worked with me to match the colors to the invitation and let me add a personal message to the card. It look great and complimented the invitation very nicely. Tiny Prints was very easy to work with and delivered a great product."
"Loved the ability to "create" 5 x 5 cards with that strip across the top. I used multiple small images. Especially appreciate the opportunity to purchase extra proper sized envelopes so as not to have to pay the extra postage for a square card. Good Job Tiny Prints!"
"I love this -- it was perfect for my business holiday greetings to clients. It's a little small, but on the other hand, I did want it to be classy and understated. As usual, the order arrived well ahead of estimates."
"I created this as our family "thank you" card, as we just had our son and needed to send "thank you" cards. We could not be more pleased with the quality, customer service, and easy to use website. I am currently designing our announcements and cannot WAIT to see how they turn out!"
"I liked this because it features each person in the family and its design is simple, not too gender specific. It's nice for sending thank yous or simple notes to anyone. The colors are really bright and pretty!"
