Make your own personal baby announcement card

An easy craft idea to announce your little one’s arrival

A newborn baby is rather special and unique – so it’s only natural that your birth announcement should be special and unique, too! And what better way to channel your creative ideas than to design a card that totally reflects your personality and taste? When it comes to decorating your handmade card, edding gel rollers in striking metallic shades are the perfect choice, enabling you to create a personalised design in a matter of moments – complete with colourful borders, cute illustrations and stylish hand lettering. We’ve got a template ready for you on our website, together with a whole host of motifs (including weighing scales and a tape measure) that are just right for your new baby card. And because edding gel rollers glide smoothly over the paper, you’ll have lots of fun being creative with all these beautiful colours.
