With all the buzz surrounding Britain’s newest little prince, we couldn’t resist joining in. We asked ourselves what we would design if the Duchess asked us to create a royal baby announcement for her new little prince (we can dream big too, right?)
A Royal Baby Announcement
We chose to go with a very elegant announcement, using high-end papers and techniques but keeping the design simple and clean. We drew inspiration from the royal family’s age-old tradition of placing a golden-framed announcement on a wooden easel within the palace gates to announce the birth to the public. The official announcement is very clean and simple, surrounded by the ornate golden frame, so we worked those elements into our design!
The result was a lovely, yet simple announcement printed on cottony white paper with a royal blue ribbon accent.
The bracket-style die cut gives it an ornate flair, and the ridged antique gold envelope liner, seal, and and backing make this announcement fit for a prince!
Finally, we used an off-white envelope with a slight shimmer and a ridged pattern, for one last touch of elegance.
