Though wedding season is starting to wind down, things are still busy over here with plenty of stationery orders and work related to remodeling my new office.
I have been busy with thank you cards, seating charts, and of course, birth announcements!
The first set of birth announcements were made to announce the arrival of adorable little Lucas! It just so happens that his parents are good friends of mine and just about a year ago, I made their wedding invitations!
Their wedding invitations were simple and clean, featuring their wedding colors. Their colors were blue and green and I created for them simple, yet elegant invitations. The invitation was printed on metallic white cardstock with olive green text, mounted on another piece of sapphire blue metallic cardstock. The RSVP card and accomodations card all coordinated through the use of the same font, ink color, and metallic paper. We finished off their ensemble with a metallic white envelope with the return address printed on the back flap. These invitations were classy and clean, with a bit of jazz. The photo below showcases the entire invitation suite (though you can't really see the shimmer of the papers, so use your imagination!)
So, fast forward to now. This couple is happily settled and ready to announce their little bundle of joy to the world! It was easy creating announcements for this family - I am very familiar with their style and in no time we were able to decide on a design, again using the blue and green color scheme, this time a little muted.
Below you will see what we came up with. It is simple, cute, and totally up their alley. Not to mention that the photo of their sweet little guy brings a smile right to your face!
The same week that I was working on these announcements, I was also creating the announcements to introduce little Carter, the cutest little thing with a great head of hair! His mom had contacted me before he was born, so we had already completed the design and were just waiting for him to make his appearance. Once he got here, we got to work putting his pictures into the design and getting them printed.
Of course, in true Sarah form, I FORGOT to take an actual photo of these announcements - grrrrrr! I have the digital file to show you, but it doesn't quite do justice for the finished product. *Sigh....
The announcements were printed on white matte stock paper, featuring the "Little Sparkler" design using colors suitable for a little boy. The result turned out really nicely and these announcements served as a great introduction for this new little guy.
