I did handmade ones with my first three- a picture glued onto a piece of paper painted or decorated somehow, with the baby's name and stats. Last time I just did a shutterfly photocard announcement and I was bummed about how it came out. So this time I'm back to handmade. I took the last page of a favorite children's book (Children of the Forest by Else Beskow), which has a picture of parents with four kids and their new baby, copied it, whited out the words and will put in our baby's name and stats there, then print four to a page on nice paper. We're sending out about 60 and will include a picture in the envelope. I've already addressed all of them.
