& Happy Birthday!

Here's a sneak peak of my new (so, there.) design. It's printed with vintage wood type, that you can see at the back of this photo.
It was super fun to figure out how to make the letters overlap just right, and the texture of the paper and woodtype just works great!

A good friend recently told me that I needed to describe the paper better, but I just can't figure out how to put it into words! The Cotton Lettra has a thick, plush, almost velvety surface.

This purple and blue card is already on the (so, there.) shop. Get it while it lasts!

I will put up the other color option soon, so keep looking if you're in love with one of these.

If you're interested, here's a couple of pictures of what the woodtype looks like, all clamped together. I cropped it in so you can't see all of the typesetting rules I'm breaking.


  1. YAY for wood type!! Those cards turned out sooo cute! I am gunna need one. :)

  2. Even after you've shown me how a letterpress works, I still think it's quite amazing when I see it all come together. Love this design and the paper is completely perfect!
