that “perfect tree”.

Then strap’n it to the roof of the family wagon, crossing

Holiday Card Bonanza!!!

It’s that time of year!

Time to send out your very best, be it truth or lies, to all those you care the most about, or to those you kinda-maybe-sorta care the most about,  or at least to those you care enough about to make them insanely jealous of all your incredibly awesome accomplishments.

Good news, we can help!

Holiday Cards

That’s right, we carved up 3 new cards for the holidays and hope you will get in on the fun. You can use these along with your favorite family pic or just add a friendly holiday greeting and “get it in the post” (say it with the accent) to your Auntie Em across the pond.

Here’s some ideas we put together:

A. JOY A7 Sample    B. Eggnog A7 Sample    C. Noel #10 Sample

A.  JOY: A7 Card (5″x 7″ Landscape) Printed on Cranes 110# Lettra with a 4″ x 4″ pic.

B.  PEACE LOVE & EGGNOG: A7 Card (5″x 7″ Portrait) Printed on Cranes 110# Lettra with a 4″ x 4″ pic. (Also added some fancy gold lick’em stick ’em photo frame corners!)

C.  NOEL: #10 Card (9.75″x 3.875″ Landscape) Printed on Cranes 110# Lettra 3.5″ x 5″ pic.

We just used a little double stick tape to attach the pics, but hey why stop there?
Get crazy, use brads, glue down some ribbon, you could even go as far as sewing on the the pictures. Main idea here is to get creative and have fun with it!

There is one catch though team… they are in limited supply.

So what are you waiting for?

Want to know exactly what goes into carving up one of these fancy designs?
Well it’s a labor of love! Each color that is printed requires its own linoleum block. As each design has 2 colors, each received 2 blocks…that’s 3 designs times 2…..aaaand carry the one……well let’s just have a looks at this picture:
