This design. I love it.
Clean. Modern. Black Foil. Suzanne's requests were music to my ears. She also has some crazy talent in the photography department and then, well she made a very cute baby. This is the making of a good birth announcement, if you ask me! The combination of black foil and the semi-gloss photo (which are attached to each card) is festive and striking. Love, love, love!
She came to me before the birth of little Jackson and had some fun ideas for them, but then captured this photo. Those kissable baby lips changed the direction of the design and I think the 'newborn kisses + happy new year wishes' is the perfect sentiment. Photos are everything to birth announcements, aren't they!? It's great to plan ahead (getting on my calendar is very helpful), but I say, wait to get the photo before you think to much about the design, because it really directs me and sets the tone for the card.
When I was packing this up, I stopped and just thought about how lucky I am that I got to design this. When a sweet person like Suzanne finds my work, lives in Dallas, wants foil birth announcements and something that no one has ever gotten in the mail before, and loves paper as much as I do… well, it's the perfect storm. A storm that brings beautiful babies and beautiful paper together!
I am so excited and honored to have it featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper today! My favorite blog! Thank you, Nole!
