I still adore the announcements we did for Isaiah, a few years back. I've always loved a traditional announcement with a picture attached. We designed Isaiah's card to be wrapped like a present, since he was born on Christmas day (and that's how his picture was secured).
I knew I wanted to do a similar style for Samuel. And his scripture, 1 Samuel 1:20, was the most important thing to me.
So here's what I came up with...
I decided to use Minted for the basic design, and then added a few touches to make it my own. I chose this card, sans the photo.
We printed the scripture on kraft paper here at home, and attached those (along with the pictures) with a decorative tape.
I love how they turned out. They make my heart skip a beat, actually.
And that picture. Oh, that picture. I snapped it at home, amidst cuddles galore.
Sweet, sweet Samuel...
Welcome, kiddo. We love you so much already.
