There are some beautiful birth announcements out there right now.
Like this one from Moontree Press (they also have a nice blog, and are responsible for the Brooklyn Social Cards business cards that I've had bookmarked and want very badly)
Or this pretty, scroll-y bird one from Sesame Letterpress.
Also from them - - I love this idea - - coasters.
And this fun, circus-y and scroll-y one from paperstories on etsy (the name on the card is a coincidence).
And this - I love the line now we are three from Aadvark Letterpress.
Or this lovely old-illustration-feel of this one by Elizabeth Hubbell Studio.
I loved this wedding story on Brooklyn Bride and can envision a birth announcement inspired by these.
And I like these simple announcements from Kate Spade. Too bad you have to fill them out yourself. Getting your announcements done was hard enough as it was and I did them all online. Geesh.
