she has arrived

Good morning all. Today I have for you a LizzyB creation, something I haven't shared in a while. About a month ago I shared with you some holiday card designs I created for the Minted Holiday Challenge, of which one was inspired by this Birth Announcement I designed for my good friends' new baby, who was born just a week ago.


This was a simple and sophisticated folded card which she could use to place the newborn's image in the space provided inside the scalloped frame. I chose a soft, metallic, rosy color palette for the card and envelope, and accented with light aqua and brown. The script typeface gives it a touch of elegance, yet the sans serif Universe font keeps if modern.


The inside shows the pertinent information surrounded by the same scalloped frame as in the front, with a lined banner serving as a background.


As a small detail in the front, I placed the month and year of her birth beneath the frame.


I also designed a personalized gift wrap using Zoe's, the newborn, initial as a motif and creating a pattern. I played around with placement and color to create interesting shapes.


And here's the wrapped birth announcements. I used the same scalloped frame as a label for a special message for the new parents. Congratulations Jazmine & Christian on your new arrival...a lovely sister to Anette!
