Birth announcement card

There is always this moment when my coworkers at the hospital find out about my creative endeavors. The best part is when one of them asks me to design their birth announcement card – in this case for her beautiful boy, Reda. My absolute pleasure.

They came up with the idea of gingko leaves. I painted them using a combination of watercolor and digital techniques. As the parents are bilingual, we created both a Dutch and a French version of the birth announcement card.

The local company We Love Recycled printed the cards on 300gsm Freelife Kendo White paper (40% post-consumer paper fiber, 55% FSC® wood fiber, and 5% hemp). And I was tickled pink to see the tiny leaf on the custom postage stamps that she ordered!
