We all know that babies begin with chemistry (ahem), so it’s only natural that the periodic table makes  a lovely graphic to showcase that sweet little face. Whether you’re a science geek or just a fan of playful design, our pals at Minted have you covered with this Elements Birth Announcement that we discovered by Pistols, a design studio of Portland.

The great thing about Minted is that you get tons of options to tweak the design, from card shape to colors, and of course the entire message and photo and even where you want either. In this case, you input your baby’s stats into the “periodic table,”,which is a lot less dangerous than mixing actual elements. Then again, I’m pretty sure I blew up a beaker once. Let’s just say there’s a reason I’m a writer and not a chemist.
