It’s a baby-filled day on OSBP today! Â But this time, it’s fun and modern birth announcements from designer Kate Holgate for her niece Elizabeth. Â Kate was inspired by vintage type and story books â€“ and I love that Kate chose a deep red as an alternative to traditional pink for a baby girl. Â She even sewed fabric pockets to hold the announcement and a photo! Â Just beautiful.
From Kate: I created baby announcements for my niece, who was born at the end of August in Geneva, Switzerland. Â I asked my sister if I could design Elizabeth’s birth announcements as a gift to mark this joyous occasion. Â The baby’s room is decorated using a Peter Rabbit theme, so I designed an announcement inspired by old story book motifs and vintage type. Â I chose a deep coral color as an alternative to the traditional “pink” signifying a girl.
The design is letterpress printed on Crane Lettra 300 gsm (soft white) by Ladybug Press in Boise, Idaho. Â I stitched fabric pockets to contain the announcements and Elizabeth’s photo. Â I can only hope that my niece will someday feel the warmth and love expressed through these announcements. Â I couldn’t be happier to welcome Elizabeth to our family!
