mothersday-easelIntroducing my first holiday letterpress greeting card!  You have exactly one week to go to prep for your Mom.momday-pressI headed back to The Arm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Dan was incredibly helpful cutting my Muscletone stock from French Paper Company down to size and set on the press with my brand new awesome photopolymer print from Boxcar Press.  Both companies were so nice and patient with my first orders and I’m so grateful, thank you!  And French has the most amazing, beautiful sample books, “paper porn” as Dan says.samplesHe also showed me my new favorite craft tool: Scor-It-All, genius!  I always wondered how cards got that nice, neat fold at the top since doing it only by hand makes the crease all crinkly.  Had to order one right away, along with this A2 envelope kit.scoreI was so happy pressing the cards, I got 50 done in hardly any time at all and am feeling strong!mothersday-and-envelopeYou can find these in my Etsy shopmothersday-standingand also next Saturday on Mother’s Day Eve at Hester Street Fair.mothersday-closeupThe scrollwork border is a free CSA image from French Paper Company: © CSA Images/French Paper.  Very cool.mothersday-backAnd now to the Hoboken Arts & Music Festival, then back to the office for a few more hours of work: big event tomorrow night, more soon!  At least the kittens get a lazy Sunday afternoon: I like this pic because in life everything can’t be just black and white, sometimes there’s a lot more grey…cats
