During the late nights that Roopal Shah spent creating unique invitations and announcements for her sister’s shower, her brother’s wedding, her son’s birth, and so on… she also discovered her genuine passion for the process of getting creative with paper and ink! Cut to 4 years later, and Roopal is still busy cranking out creative custom designs – through her very own design studio: 1st Comes Love.

At 1st Comes Love – as Roopal explains – “We focus on creating designs for wedding invitations, birth announcements, and just about any piece of stationery you could need!”

My fav is “Grace” because of the pinks and brown AND that the design is small and delicate on the announcement!

I love how the holiday “peace, love, joy” card is festive without being the typical red and green. This gives it a lot of use outside of the holidays or for individuals who celebrate holidays other than the “red and green” ones.

Krys SAYS:

Tropical Wishes is my favorite holiday card – I’m usually so insistent that my holiday cards LOOK like holiday cards, but my husband and I are so desperate for a cruise vacation that this looks like my dream card for the season! I love the turquoise color, it’s so soft!!!
