birth announcement

this is a custom letterpress birth announcement suite that i recently finished. since the baby was born in the spring, we wanted to incorporate a fresh spring feeling to a simple and modern announcement. little hand cut fabric leaves are applied to the end of the hand drawn name. letter pressed on ultra heavy cotton museum board, the announcements are printed with taupe ink bringing in the warm brown of the kraft envelopes.




the back includes a hand sewn fabric pocket to enclose the baby's photo (the thank you notes fit inside also... it's a two birds with one stone thing). 

the casual kraft envelopes are lined with white waxed tissue competing the softness of the suite.


the thank you cards are simply letter pressed with a hand drawn heart and the baby's name. they can either be inserted into their own soft pink envelope or tucked into the pocket on the back of the announcement.
