My dear friend, Estelle, recently welcomed her first child into the world. I was honored to create custom birth announcements for the arrival of her sweet little boy. She and her husband settled on this design, with bold, playful birds on apple green paper accompanied by a lively turquoise vine. Because Estelle also happens to be French, we had two versions, where I could switch out the turquoise elements for each language but keep the brown plate the same. The tall, flat announcement was mailed in a clear vellum envelope, with just a hint of the exciting news showing through.
