Aidynn's Birth Announcements

Here are the birth announcements that I made for our new little one. I know you see brown & pink together so often now for baby girls, but I just love it! I really like how the announcements turned out & the best part was that the majority of the work was done before the baby even arrived!
Here's what it looks like when you pull it out of the envelope. The brown card stock with the "sweet little baby" message on it is just a band that slides onto the card to hold it closed.
Here is the announcement all opened up. I made it a trifold card so that I could put all of the information plus a photo on it.

A close-up of the top part with die-cut butterflies & her name-I ordered the stamp personalized with her name through Stampin' Up!

Here's the photo we chose to use for the announcement. My sister-in-law, Beth, took the photo & it turned out so nice! I didn't want to glue the photo to the announcement because I know that people will want to stick the photo on the fridge or frame it, etc. so I just used the slit punch. This way the photo was held into place, but could still be removed by those who want to keep it.

And here's the bottom portion of the announcement. It has all of the stats of the baby on it. I just used a simple font on my computer & printed them out since I had to make so many announcements!
