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!
