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!

A great source of typograpy inspiration is the handwritten chalkboard menus displayed on sidewalks in front of French restaurants and cafés.

The (usually) black-and-white pallete gives them a tone of sophistication but still evokes a down-to-earth, artsy vibe that people are starting to draw from for event signage. Wouldn’t it be fun to work with a professional calligrapher to hand-letter a menu or even ceremony program for a wedding?
