The Delicate Pen and my savvy, stationer friends over at Pipo Press recently teamed up to create a baby announcement. The mother, Amy, was excited to announce a girl, after proudly having two boys previously. To announce a daughter for child number three was going to be great fun, so first I lettered the word “Daughter.” Pipo Press drop shaded the lettering for double impact. I then lettered the baby’s name, once it was decided upon. The White family moved into a new home at the same time of the baby’s birth, so we suggested they take the opportunity to use the announcement as an address notification as well. On the reverse side we lettered, “New residence….new resident” with the updated address and family’s name underneath. Pipo Press then did the final layout and printing on 5 by 7 cards with their signature curved corners, and voilá!
I love that baby Eloise has introduced herself to the world in hot pink instead of the traditional pastel shade. The middle name of “deNevue” is a family name and she will be lovingly called “Edie.”
We shall also take this opportunity for our own announcement! We will have a Give Away very soon on this site. Stop back soon!
