I’m absolutely in love with these sophisticated baby announcements from Lisa at Missive – from the 1950s-inspired typography and subtle touches of gold foil to the beveled edges and gold envelope liner. Lisa was inspired by the turquoise and gold wallpaper that she chose for Adler’s bedroom, and the resulting design is an elegant way to announce the arrival of a little gentleman!
From Lisa: My son Adler’s announcements were inspired by the design of his nursery, in particular, the turquoise, black, and antique gold wallpaper that hangs on the wall behind his crib. I used this color palette as a starting point to create a sophisticated letterpress announcement for my little gentleman.
To infuse a little history and personal sentiment into the design, I scanned the text that reads “Announcing” from a vintage 1950s birth announcement — my own mother’s — and created a clean, deco style to complement it.
I added special touches like beveled corners on the card and photo, and with the help of our good friend and fellow printer Tim Butler of Quality Letterpress, added foil stamping in an antique gold color to match the envelope liners.
Thanks so much Lisa! And congratulations on baby Adler!
