Holiday Card 2015

No time no blog! I figured since it’s the last day of the year (how did that happen?), I would share the holiday card I designed this year.


For this year, I hand lettered the “happy holidays,” vectorized it, and then had a custom stamp made from I purchased the cards, envelopes, ink pads, pine stamp, and embossing powder from Paper Source. Then came the hard work—stamping two separate stamps with two different colors and heat embossing about 80 cards. All in all, I think it took about 4-5 hours to make them all. I actually added the pine stamp after stamping all of the cards, because it felt like there was too much awkward white space in the bottom right corner—and I’m really glad I did.

I then addressed all the envelopes with silver calligraphy pens, stamped our return address in silver ink, and finished them off with Peanuts stamps! I’m very happy with how they turned out—but maybe next year I’ll do something less labor intensive.

Hope everyone has a great start to the new year!

Wedding Paper Goods | Rehearsal Dinner Invites

Time for the rehearsal dinner invites!


For these, I used the #10 Paper Source notecards in Ecowhite and printed them on my printer. Then I used their terrarium rubber stamp for an added accent, since our rehearsal dinner had a slight succulent theme. The envelopes are #10 in Paper Bag for a rustic-y look. I’m really happy with how these turned out—they fit the theme of the invitation suite but were still different enough to stand out a bit.

Wedding Paper Goods | Save the Date

About two months overdue, the next part of the wedding paper goods series.

I probably should’ve posted these before the invites, but ah well. I used Paper Source papers and had a custom stamp made, which we stamped on the paper and then heat embossed. The photo is one of our engagement session photos (the first session, which my sister in law took, the same week we got engaged) were printed through Shutterfly which was quick and easy. Then I mounted them onto the back of the enclosure card with the Paper Source tape runners. Thanks to my bridesmaids for helping me assemble them all!
