Behind the Scenes: Frances’ Custom Birth Announcement

September 3, 2015

In the spring of this year, my friend Maggie asked me make a custom birth announcement and coordinating stationery for their second daughter, Frances. Sweet baby Frances and her gigantic smile happily landed on the scene in mid-February. I loved the idea of making a birth announcement, something I’d never done before. Maggie and I agreed on a springy, colorful palette and lots of florals. Check out the color palette, sketches and hand-lettering samples that were part of my process. 

Happy Thursday, Friends!
