Penelope's Floral Letterpress Birth Announcements by Lauren Chism Fine Papers

These announcements are especially close to my heart because this is my newest niece, Penelope. She is the cutest, sweetest little baby girl and I loved getting to design her birth announcements. I am so excited to share, now that they were featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper today!

Carley generally let's me do whatever I want, but I did know that she loves the clean look of letterpress, so that's what we went with. She opted out of traditional pink for the nursery and incorporated yellow, red and blue instead,  so I decided to go with red for the announcement, with kraft envelopes.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have caught my little color debate on the day that these were printed. I was going back and forth on the colors, and wanted to experiment with them and so my printer and I tried both color ways. I ultimately couldn't chose a favorite and printed half and half. Indecision isn't always a bad thing :)

I love coordinating down to the stamp, so I ordered these new bird stamps and closed each one with tiny heart stickers from Thatch and Thistle.

I also designed some matching stationery with the floral pattern printed on the reverse side. Every girl needs her own stationery!
