i've been pleasantly inundated with holiday orders this season. friends, family and strangers have been ordering my stationery to use for their holiday greetings to their own loved ones. i'm really pushing to change people's idea of traditional holiday cards - in that they don't have to be cards, but notes, writing paper, postcards or flat cards. the first two images below show one of my largest orders yet for my friend holly - seventy envelopes and seventy sheets of writing paper, all wrapped up and ready to mail.
while making stationery for others, i've been wondering what to do for my own holiday greetings. then, in a stroke of luck, i came across this amazing cd and cover art by kate gabrielle (of flapper doodle and scathingly brilliant blog). kate offers four different 1920's musical downloads in her shop. i can't tell you how wonderful this cd is and i definitely recommend you purchase/download it - what a throwback! i'm excited to try one of her other musical selections at some point.
so i thought, wouldn't it be wonderful to create a mailer, include the cd and my own greeting, and send it to my closest friends? i used both white and pink card stock and i think it turned out quite well! on the back side, i placed the mailing and return labels. i've ordered some vintage canadian stamps so hopefully those will fit in the upper right corner!
