I know I’m a little behind in posting these, but they turned out so well I couldn’t not share them. Here are some of the custom holiday cards I designed this year, including our own Christmas card.
First up was this sparkly number with deep charcoal background and a faux glitter effect:
This next design was for my brother-in-law and his family. They moved earlier this year, so we included their new address on the envelope flap with an arrow to highlight it. (btw, is our nephew the cutest or what?)
This design features a wreath of pinecones and winter florals in a gray and red palette. I carried the wreath over to the envelope flap as well, I love printed envelopes!
Last but not least, our family card, which I used to test out my printer’s gold foil. I love how the gold foil looks over a full-bleed photo card- and hope to offer a lot of foil in future collections.
I only took a few custom holiday clients this year, but hope to offer a full line of photo cards next year, as well as some other seasonal paper goods. I’ll keep you updated when 2014 holiday work gets underway in May, (yep- May!)
This next and final introduction is actually a card you’ve already met, but with an exciting new twist: gold foil!
Snow Fancy was one of the lucky designs to be included in Minted’s debut collection of foil pressed holiday cards. Be sure to check out the full assortment, they have to be some of the prettiest cards out there.
That rounds out my 2013 holiday collection for Minted, be sure to check out parts 1 and 2 if you missed them! Happy weekend!
Wow, how is it already September? I have been hard at work on my wedding invitation collection, and am getting so excited to debut it in the coming months.
The invitation suite I’m introducing today, Vintage Lace, is one that I designed for Kimberly Fitzsimons, Classically Chic Letterpress. I won’t lie, I was absolutely obsessed with the samples when they showed up at my door a few weeks ago– the patterned letterpress backers, the gold foil (!)– these are some luxurious invitations!
Printed in Pool ink and Gold Foil on fluorescent white cotton paper, the design features a delicate lace pattern and classic, elegant type.
Vintage Lace, in addition to my Ringlet suite, is available for purchase through Kimberly Fitzsimons’ shop.
