BIG WHOOP! & A LITTLE BEE!

Summer Card Fun Time! Two new ones this past week!

One of my favorite sayings is BIG WHOOP!. Always has been. Then my sister adopted a bloodhound a few weeks ago who's name is Whoopi. Fate? Destiny? Planets Aligned? So we punched some solid letters into a nice thick white card with some acid green ink!

The card has a nice impression. Bold. Solid. Boom.

Our other new card is a nice little notecard perfect for anyone having a tough day or watching this nonstop election coverage. 

This two color card starts with the yellow lettering.

Then the second pass prints a beautiful purple bee! The bee started out as an engraving which was scanned into our computer, cleaned up and processed into a printing plate, via Boxcar Press. This is the best way to incorporate a wood engraving into a letterpress project that takes a deep impression. If we printed the engraved block on the card it wouldn't have that strong debossment that us letterpress nuts love! 

 

BIG WHOOP is paired up with a classic Kraft Brown envelope and HAPPY THOUGHTS comes with a bright aqua blue envelope! Both of these beauties are available in our Etsy shop right here: HAPPY THOUGHTS and BIG WHOOP!

Some very cool stuff is on deck! Keep an eye out!
