Christmas Card 2006

I adore letterpress. I think the words themselves really need no other adornment when they are pressed into beautiful paper like this. I had the press that did Audrey's birth announcements, The Mandate Press, create these single panel Christmas cards for me.

This year, especially after Audrey's birth, I felt this one word said it all.

I used the same font and printed a message on vellum, enclosed a family photo taken by Julie Shipman and tied the little package with ribbon that has the same subtle sheen as the paper stock.

Fun to finally be sending a Christmas card, and to be involved in the making. I used to hand make cards in high school and college and I loved doing it. Maybe I can continue that in the years to come.
