Birth announcement for Bram

1

I made this birth announcement for little Bram. I think it’s fair to say that this was literally one of the biggest projects I have ever done in my career so far.
This birth announcement is extra special because it is full of objects that have real sentimental value for the new parents. The cradle that is pictured where all of my illustrations are located around is the cradle that Bram actually sleeps in now that he’s born. The blanket in the cradle is knitted by Bram’s grandmother (my aunt) and the crocheted puppet you see all the way in the front of the parade is made by Bram’s great-grandmother.
The birth announcement is printed on A5 (european size) matte cardboard.

P.S.: You can find a ‘making of’ article for this birth announcement here.
