We wanted to create a special birth announcement to welcome Bonnie's baby boy, Preston Oakes Cross, into the world. Our concept took its inspiration from her family farm where she grew up, married, and where Oakes will be baptized this summer.
The property is bounded by a beautiful river which brought to mind the natural world of trees, foliage, deer, canoes, and herons. The announcement is letter-pressed and duplexed with another card printed with all these images. Currier hand painted in watercolor a soft graphic pattern for the envelope liner. The photo was printed on metallic paper to add a crisp note to the overall color palette. And of course Oakes provided his adorable baby face.
Don't you just want to kiss those cheeks!
The announcements were featured on the lovely blog: Oh So Beautiful Paper
