All that Glitters
The Hot Card of the Week is from our dear friends The Paperia located in Ardmore, PA. This holiday card showcases the word “love” in an elegant script and die-cut from our Ruby Glitter paper to give the card added dimension. We chose this design because of its simplicity, when sometimes you may not want to showcase a photo, just a nice sentiment for the holiday season.
Off the Cuff
We chose to showcase this save the date and menu from our awesome Pittsburgh store, Nota Bene, because both pieces were different takes on the same affair. The cufflink die-cut was etched out of our Silver Mirri paper and then added to both cards. The menu also features the Silver Mirri paper as a base layer. We love the masculinity of both of these pieces, especially paired with the abstract mirrored paper.
Purple Pebble Eater
This gorgeous Hot Card is from the lovely Ink.Papery in Fair Haven, NJ. We love this entire Bat Mitzvah suite because it was derived from two of our wedding spreads. We love the concept of combining styles to create an invitation that is truly unique to the individual. It takes a really great creative eye to be able to envision what the design will look like when you are simply piecing it together on paper.
The last few moments of summer are begging us to drop everything and go on a bike ride. The Hot Card was tailor made to fit the Bar Mitzvah boy’s passion, mountain biking. This is the first time we have designed a mountain bike die-cut, but not the first time we have created a look representing a client’s passion and hobby. Enjoy the last few moments of summer (especially if you’re going to be shoveling snow soon)!
