In order to save some cash monies (babies are expensive!) and truly make my vision come to life I decided to design my own birth announcements in PowerPoint. Of course I used my favorite modern calligraphy font, Bombshell Pro, on both the announcements and the envelopes. On the announcements I also used Copperplate Light font (pre-loaded on my Mac) and added some blue circles for some design interest on the front and back. I made the little paw print by Olivia's name out of overlapping ovals.
I bought the cardstock and envelopes from Paper Source and printed them all on my personal printer. I printed the wallet-sized photos on the front and back from SmugMug. They have the best quality prints!
Charles' darling bow swaddle was a gift from my mother-in-law and can be found locally at Charlotte's or online on The Beaufort Bonnet Company's website (here). His is the Buckhead Blue Chambray. I had it monogrammed with his initials and date of birth here in Raleigh.
Pretty simple and I think it's one of my favorite projects to date!
I can't get enough of this little boy who is 4 weeks old today. We are so in love with our happy baby!
