Letterpressed Announcements for Baby Emery

October 4th, 2010

Above are some photos of a birth announcement I’ve been working on for my brother and sister-in-law. Isn’t that just the sweetest name and most precious little girl?!

Each were letterpressed onto Fluorescent White 110 lb. Lettra Paper. The Papaya Envelopes from Paper Source are lined with a matching custom liner and the photos are attached with strips of foam mounting tape for depth. I  just have to finish attaching each of the photos and then I can send them to the beautiful parents. I can’t wait and I hope they like them!

    So beautiful! You have done an amazing job. How do you do your envelope liners? Just with paper?

    Thanks!

    Hi Kim,
    Thanks so much! Yes, the envelope liners are just printed digitally onto plain paper then cut to fit the envelope. I used my handy Silhouette craft cutter to cut them each out. Hope that helps!

    Hi Komal,
