Baby Announcements: Do-it-yourself

Click here to view the full magazine article

This month's baby announcement uses clean lines, simple shapes, and classic colors (black and white) to create a stunning baby announcement. You could create something like this using a program such as Photoshop Elements, Coral, or another basic painting or illustration program you have on your computer. The layers are shown here so you can be sure and create in the right order. Of course, the photograph here is a huge element! I always like the classic look of black and white in photos (mom or dad wears black or white and the background is also black or white). Fonts used here are Baskerville and Jefferson. The invitation is 6 inches x 6 inches.
