I am very excited to share the birth announcement I designed for my son, Cooper. Shortly after he was born we found out that he has Down syndrome. While most of our friends and family knew of our little guy's arrival and condition, as a stationer, I knew I had to send out birth announcements.
Cooper's birth announcements are featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper.
I knew I wanted the design to be as unique and special as my darling boy. The design features an envelope within an envelope. Recipients peel off the polka dotted washi tape to discover Cooper’s photo peeking out of the envelope. The back of the photo includes all his birthday stats. I am a sucker for letterpress and envelope liners. The card with the cross-hatch pattern is letterpress printed on 220# cotton paper. Both envelopes are lined with a fun triangle pattern.
I have been learning calligraphy and thought this was the perfect opportunity to test out my skills. I love the white ink on the kraft paper. Yummy!
I've decided to offer Cooper's birth announcement for sale in my Etsy shop. If a special child has come into your life, I would love to design a beautiful announcement for them. Please contact me, and I would love to discuss it with you.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the design will be donated to the Global Down Syndrome Foundation.
