oceany letterpress announcement


here is a look at my newest project. a light and airy ocean inspired birth announcement. 

 working with the colors in the beautiful photo of baby ryan, we decided to print with a combination of blind (no ink) and soft aqua. the announcement was printed on yummy crane lettra letterpress paper.
 each announcement had a burgee inspired linen flag sewn to the top of the card. each flag was hand stamped with a little anchor monogram and tied with flax linen twine.
 the baby's photo was backed with handmade aqua paper and tucked between the flag and the announcement card.
