Birth announcement card

I cannot think of a better way to start off being an aunt to a beautiful niece! Needless to say, that made the creative process extra special.

My sister and brother-in-law wrote the beautiful poem on the back of the card with the ginkgo leaves. Within the theme of nature, I hand-carved a few stamps to experiment with—quite early on, we decided the rising sun was the right one. The finishing piece was her photo, that I took when she was just 48 hours old.

The card was printed by Peter Print on 300gsm Biotop paper (FSC-certified).
