Holiday Card 2014

LET IT SNOW!

Here is a look at our personal Christmas cards for this year! They feature our little dude and our little dog making some snow angels.

  The drawing was separated into 2 images, one that will be printed blue and the other which will be blind debossed with no ink. This is a peek at the registration before the plate is ordered and made.

  The 1st plate was printed using a hand-mixed icy blue ink.

  These were printed on 110lb Cranes Lettra paper for a soft feel and a heavy impression!

The 2nd plate was printed with no ink. This plate had the snowflakes and the snow angel outline on it. Just using the pressure of the press created a cool effect that looks like the "snow" of the paper has its own impression! 

  I used the Kelsey press to print the backs of the cards and the return addresses on the envelopes.
