Finally . . . Aaron's Announcements

Well, I finally have mailed out most of Aaron's birth announcements so I feel like I can post them here now. It took me waaaaayyyy too long to get these done! I think I just had too many elements, but I love how they look so who cares!? :)

So here it is!! It was difficult to get a good picture . . . the photo is not really that dark. As you can see, it is a Cami Trifold card. I finally broke down and bought one of the Marvy scalloped punches - this is the Oval Giga Scalloped punches. The DP is from Michaels - I loved the stripe and the polka dots and the color matched with Aaron's outfit in the photo! The stamps are A Muse and the ribbon is May Arts. The brown cardstock is Bazzill (I think I finally ended up with Root Beer, who knew there were sooo many shades of brown!).

Here is the inside.I used SU!'s ticket corner punch and printed the text on my computer - I love the font, ExtraOrnamentalNo2 - I think it just looks circus-y?

This is a shot of the photo on the inside. Before I had them printed I added his name and birthday to the picture so I wouldn't have to hand-write that on the back - saved soooo much time!!! I did however, put the text a bit too far to the right so after cropping Aaron's face is not completely centered in the opening to prevent cutting off his name. Don't you just love his little lion sweater?!

As I said they most went out yesterday, what a relief! I also finished all of my thank you cards too - it was a productive evening in front of the tv! :)

Thanks for checking in - hope you have a great day!
