Stationery | Christmas Card + Matching Gift Tag

“Bright wishes…” indeed!  I was delighted to design this Christmas card and matching gift tag for Lindsay.  We talked about using traditional colors of red or green or gold, but when she mentioned possibly going for bolder, non-traditional gem colors, we went for it!  A royal purple bellyband with their family initial dresses up this 5″x 7″ greeting.  Lindsay then slipped a 4″x 6″ family photo loosely inside the band and on top of the card.  That way friends and family could pull out the photo and frame it as they wished.  A custom return address rubber stamp (not pictured) in the same font families completed the look of the chartreuse envelopes, while this coordinating 3″x 3″ gift tag completed her holiday gift wrapping in style.  The best part is these gift tags will last her year round – birthdays, weddings, baby showers, you name it!  With chartreuse & royal purple dressing up this Christmas card and gift tag set, how could they be anything but “bright” wishes?!

Stationery | Peacock Blue Note Cards

I love a bold colored envelope.  I love how it sets itself apart from bills and other white noise the moment you glance at a stack of mail.  These lovely peacock blue envelopes inspired this personalized note card set.  A swirl of an ink pen and a splash of chartreuse in the monogram – I imagine this clean, modern design will inspire Ms. Wilson to script many a personalized note!

Stationery | Personalized Note Cards

I’ve been making my list and checking it twice – lots to do before Christmas arrives!  Things are hopping in the studio these days as I am wrapping up orders for custom Christmas cards, return address stamps and completing ephemera for Erica + Charles’ wedding next weekend.  I’m excited to post about these projects over the next couple of weeks.  In the meantime, here is something lovely to munch on: a personalized note card set for Jan.  Only it’s not for Jan.  It’s a Christmas gift for Jan’s friend.  (Don’t you wish you were Jan’s friend?!)   Stay tuned after the holidays to see a full post on this design.

Stationery | Asian-Inspired 50th Birthday Invitations

Red + Gold.  Shimmery cover stock + patterned lined envelopes.  Koi + Fonts inspired by Japanese Samurai.  These details all came together for Eric’s Asian-Inspired 50th Birthday Party Invites.  Which brings me to say, ハッピーバースデー , Eric!  (That’s “Happy Birthday” in Japanese, of course.)
