greetings all!! hope you’re having wonderful summers thus far! ours has been full of pool, camps, swim team, overflowing pool bags, hanging wet swimsuits on doorknobs to dry and OH SO MANY sunscreen applications. if you can’t tell, we are pretty much living at the pool right now. you have to in this crazy heat wave! plus, it wears the kids out so nicely and i LOVE that.
i wanted to just do a pop-in (no time for a lengthy post because #summer – still working on the 2 of 2 disney trip post and some other fun things) to show you guys some hybrid business cards/notecards. i did them a bit ago for my friend laura with laura negri photography, who i love using for my children’s photo sessions. she took this photo of my three wild ones which i used on my christmas card this past year, and i’m still in disbelief that she made it happen. i mean…they all look cute with genuine smiles and looking in the same general direction?! i didn’t think it was possible. amazing.
(also, remember the victorian sofa i inherited from my grandmother from this post? this is it, recovered!)
anyway, laura told me she wanted something between a business notecard where she could jot a note to a client, and a business card with contact information. i think this is genius! i love an all in one, rather than two specific pieces to keep on hand and include with orders. i came up with a small, 3.5″ x 5″ notecard with her logo at top, and contact information along the bottom…but lots of space to write a message in between.
we letterpressed them on crane’s double thick stock (my very favorite) and edged them in metallic gold…swoon. we also lined the envelopes in a beautiful blue floral pattern that is one of her branding elements. love how they turned out!
also, just a note since i’m not able to be here as much as i would like — i started a new series on instagram called #behindthepapercurtain. you can follow along (@calliespondence) for little snapshots of how i make the donuts, so to speak. it’s been fun so far!!
back soon with more fun things!! hope y’all are staying cool and having fab summers.
