Frogs!

It’s been a while since I gave my little etsy shop any real attention on this blog – so I thought I would share one of the newest additions to it with you!  If you haven’t been to my etsy shop in a while, you’ll notice a couple of really cute new additions, both in the form of little green frogs.  

The first of the two is a great multi-purpose card.  It features a little green thoughtful looking frog with the words “Thinking of You” on the front.  As always, this card is blank on the inside for your own personal message.  They are sold as singles for $4 each or as a box of six for $20. 

The second frog card is a little more occasion specific.  He is jumping for joy with the message “Happy Birthday to You” on the front.  These cards are currently only sold as singles, but if someone wanted a box of six, I’d be happy to arrange that.  

Both frog card designs were printed on Crane’s Lettra Bright White 100% cotton cover stock and both come with lovely, 4bar size, leaf green envelopes to match.  Both have a really awesome texture particularly because of the raised white hearts on their chests.  Because the green of the frogs gets pressed down all around the little white heart from the letterpress, the hearts came out quite a bit raised – it’s kind of silly, but really pleasing to run your fingers over. The artwork for both of these cards was originally created by my good friend Ashley, if you want to check out more of her original art work, go take a peek at her etsy shop.  Happy Etsy Shopping!
  

For Babies & Birthdays

Well, I was worried that it might happen and it seems to have: it’s been almost a month since my last blog post.  Granted, I don’t really think of myself as a “writer” per se, and business has been really busy, but I promise, I will try to be better in the future.  Seriously…  

So to get out of this blogging dry spell, I present you with these totally cute cards in celebration of babies and birthdays!  

Aren’t they cute?  I drew and made photopolymer plates for the giraffe several months ago and just never got around to printing them.  The text on all three of the cards is handset metal type, which was a lot of fun.  
If you know of anyone who is having an upcoming birthday (a cute little kid, or a kid at heart) who might enjoy a giraffe, or you know of someone who just a had a baby and would like one of these cards, they are available in my etsy shop. You can find the birthday one here, the girl here or boy here.  Also, if you or someone you know has just had a baby, I think that the “It’s a Boy!” or “It’s a Girl!” Giraffe cards would also make adorable letterpress baby announcements.  Therefore, they are also available in sets, here or here
I’ll have more on what’s been keeping me so busy in letterpress land lately, very soon! Promise…
