And just like that, it's November and I can already feel the holidays barreling towards us! So on that note, I'd like to introduce my new holiday cards for 2013! I've been hard at work on these for a few months now and I'm so pleased to have them in my shop!
Go on, try not to sing that song after checking out my new "Oh, what fun!" cards! While I've never done it myself, I can imagine how exciting it would be to go dashing through the snow in my MINI. This card features a woodsy scene with a windy mountain road. Some stars and a evergreen trees make it a very merry holiday setting!
The cards are all hand screen printed by me with a two color process. I use water-based acrylic inks and thick 100lb stock from French Paper. They are currently available in three different colorways - silver and deep blue on speckled white, bright gold and forest green on speckled white, and bright gold and forest green on kraft brown. I'm hoping to print another color combo on the kraft brown this weekend, so keep an eye out for that.
I used a few different artistic methods to create this design - I'll share a few behind the scenes glimpses into my process next week! Have a wonderful weekend.
UPDATE: I couldn't resist trying out a couple other colorways over the weekend and I think they are my favorites, yet! Now available in kraft brown, black and white, and kraft brown, black and metallic gold. All are now listed in the shop!
