We have revamped our popular Sweet Valentines to include scratch n sniff magic! Availabe in our online shoppe, this series is inspired by sugary love songs and sweet treats. With a retro nod to elementary school days, the set features three sheets of perforated “tear-off” valentines, each measuring 4.25x5.5" for a total of 12 cards. Furthering the nostalgia, the cards also feature scratch 'n sniff decals in the following scents: cake, chocolate, cherry and strawberry.
The set also includes envelopes in four shades of love and sticker-backed mailing labels that you can fill out. The sets sell for $20 and you can buy them here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/89214579/sweet-valentines-with-scratch-n-sniff

We’re just loving all the Art Deco design and event inspiration we’re seeing on the blogs and Pinterest lately. Is it trickling down from The Great Gatsby film this past summer, or is it just a timely trend? In any case, we wanted in so when we were asked to participate in a Jazz-Age styled shoot last summer, we jumped at the chance to develop our own version of an Art Deco Invitation Suite.
We wanted to capture some of the flare from that era while still giving the suite a current twist, so we used modern, geometric shapes set against Parisian-style type and a sans serif secondary font. We screen printed the suite with metallic yellow gold, matte white and black ink on licorice black and fluorescent white cardstock.
We also developed some fresh Day Of elements including die-cut Escort Cards in shades of purple, meant to hang from a ribbon wall to emulate the “chandelier” effect on the Invitation and Reply Card. We completed the dazzle with a gold glitter Envelope Liner and backer to the hexagon-shaped Dinner Menu.
Happy November! Today we’re rolling out our latest holiday card series. Festive holiday cocktails inspired this fun set featuring original watercolor artwork and tear-off recipe cards. Christmas Cranberry Mint Juleps, Candy Cane Cosmos and Glühwein (aka Mulled Wine) are meant to be shared during this season’s celebrations.
The cover of each card features a holly jolly wreath made from the coordinating beverage’s ingredients, and the inside (back of the front cover) has an illustrated seasonal drink with recipe for eight. The fold is perforated so that the recipe card may be torn off for convenient display, storage and reference.
Where the interior greeting is printed, there is space for a personal message as well. All of the cards in this line feature the following text:
Front Message: Holiday Cheer | Inside Message: Wishing you a joyful celebration!
You can purchase the cards online in our shop on Etsy or email us for a direct order. The A2 cards are sold in multipacks of twelve or single-design packs of eight with sparkling red envelopes for all. We can also customize orders – just drop us a line! The cards are illustrated with watercolor paint and flat printed by hand on recycled white, felt-textured cardstock. Cheers!
