More Holiday cards!

Here are a few more cards I designed this year! All were printed offset as flat, single-sided cards and were mailed in matching shimmer envelopes.

Company Christmas card

I had to blog about another Christmas card today! I designed this card at KO (my full-time job) and LOVE the way it turned out. We had them letterpressed on seed-embedded paper through Bloomin' Promotions (can't say enough about those folks– they are great!) I got the cards this morning and really wanted to take pictures to post on here, but wasn't sure how they'd turn out. Luckily the tips from this post by Anne Ruthman Photography at Wedding Bee Pro worked great for this! Who knew my camera could take such cool up close shots?

Merry Christmas!

Now that most of our friends and family have gotten our Christmas card, I wanted to post it here! I used one of my favorite background designs for this year's card, and mixed it up by incorporating brown and green, two of my favorite colors and a little less traditional. We sent them off in a dark brown shimmery envelope complete with hand addressing in gold ink. Fun! I designed 4 other cards this year and will post them later in the week once they've been sent out. Although it's too late for Christmas cards, there is still time for Happy New Year (or a generic Happy Holiday) card! Contact me if you are interested.

Erin & Kevin's Wedding Invitations

Last week I delivered wedding invitations to Erin & Kevin and I just have to be honest and say I love the way these turned out! My example below doesn't do the piece justice– I'll get a photo up sometime soon if I can. They were printed on Classic Crest natural linen in a solid, rich black ink. The invitation was glued into a black linen envelofold and the inserts were held together with a black satin ribbon and placed on top. It is a very simple but oh-so-classy looking piece, and I'm so happy with them. The bride and groom are, too!
