Olivia’s Baby Announcement


  Olivia's Handmade Baby Announcement

There is no better joy then when you welcome a baby into your life and Olivia is definitely a great joy to her parents, Trina  and Jason. She is so beautiful and it is hard to believe that she is just a newborn in this photo.

They both have relatives spread all over, so this Baby Announcement Card is the perfect way to share their joy with those relatives and make it seem as if they are here.

I want to thank Trina and Jason for allowing be to feature their beautiful baby, Olivia.

I hope that you will consider giving Baby Announcement Cards as Shower Gift. It is a wonderful way to spread the joy.


Blank Baby Announcement Card Insert

The front of the card is Handmade using Card Stock etc, but I used My Digital Studio to compose all of Olivia's important information for the card insert. For privacy reason's I haven't included a copy of Olivia's information, but I did show you a template that you can change to suit your needs.

I composed the card insert using My Digital Studio's ~ Multiple Output Options. I started with a blank 8 1/2" X 11" project in the portrait orientation. I composed the wording using Arial Font ~ Size 12 and had it aligned in the center. I copied information and paste it 3 more times in the corners of the page. When I was done I was able to cut the sheet of paper in quarters and trim it a little bit, to get the card insert.

The following are the instructions on how to create the outside of Olivia's Baby Announcement Card.
