So this is Hank’s birth announcement. It is cute, my friends. Can you handle the cuteness? If you want a similar design for your own birth announcements, or your save-the-date card, or your Christmas card, or whatever, here’s what we did:
The card is based on a Martha Stewart Baby design, and went out in a bright blue Paper Source envelope with a red address label and a little American flag stamp. The card stock was also Paper Source. (If there’s a store near you, they’ll have more color options available than the ones you see on the site, so it’s worth heading over.)
The round photo of him is actually a sticker, an Avery label to be exact. We grayed out this photo, then Warholed it in Photoshop, cut the label sheets in half, and printed the photos on one of those mini home photo printers. It was kind of a pain, so if Photoshop makes your head hurt, Zazzle will make the stickers for you.
I got the Hank stamp and the birth information stamps (for the back of the cards) through an office-stamp company online. I’ve since lost the link, but it was a lot like these guys. They’re the self-inking kind, which made the process much easier. We wrote in his birth date and weight info.
Ta-Da! If you make your own version, send me a note. I’d love to see it.
