Recently a couple of good friends of ours had a little baby girl. To welcome little baby Violet into the world we got her a bright red teddy bear- a simple and classic gift but with a modern twist. Instead of adorning the gift with the usual congratulatory card to the parents, I thought it would be an unique idea to write a letter to Violet that she and her parents could keep, for years to come, as a memento of her birth.
So we wrote a little letter to the newborn, slipped it into a mini envelope that I had customised from a previous project, then tied it up to the teddy with string.
For the front of the envelope I designed this cursive lettering for her name that included an icon of the flower she was named after.
I printed the letter onto textured white stock then used a rounded corner punch to trim the edges.
In the postal stamp at the back of the envelope, I inserted her birthdate and a message of congratulations to the proud parents.
I also customised the envelope seal to match the teddy that we bought for her.
