These custom designed letterpress notecards were commissioned by a client for his wife as a Christmas gift. We started with the color palette and envelope liner paper. The lovely liner paper ended up inspiring the entire design. I scanned and printed the paper design in metallic silver onto the back of the cards and used a scaled down version of the pattern in a very transparent silver on the front. I finished by rounding the corners of the notecards and printing the return address in silver on the flaps of the envelopes. The result is a very custom, modern design with tasteful and slightly rustic feel.
