Project Description

I really wanted to make a birth announcement for my daughter that was cutesy enough for a baby, but still something she could appreciate as she got older. The only direction I gave myself was to make it feminine but not cheesy. This definitely was for me as much as it was her.

Production Lesson(s)

I learned that it doesn't hurt to ask. A friend called in a favor to help me have these letterpressed, and the folks at Rise & Shine were way awesome and willing to help me get the best announcement out of it, especially with that sweet edging. I did have to make them honorary godparents though.”
