Flocking stockings adorn this new letterpress design.
We love the holidays, not just because it means we get to work on holiday card designs! We’re kicking off the season with this new limited edition design for 2011 we’ve lovingly titled Flocking Stockings. A boxed set of 6 cards and lined envelopes (A2) is $22 and will be available for purchase in the shop.
The cards are printed on 100% cotton (110lb pearl white) paper in an A2 size (4.25″ x 5.5″ folded). We used a holiday red ink for the stockings and text, and a simple black ink for the clothes line.
Each card was printed on a Vandercook Universal III using custom-mixed ink. After printing, the cards were trimmed, scored, and hand glittered and flocked. Due to their unique hand-made nature, the flocking and glitter varies from card to card.
Below are two stereoscopic photos, which will help you see the texture the flocking adds to each stocking. To see the 3D image, cross your eyes until the images overlap and bring them into focus.
Each boxed set also includes six lined envelopes with the two patterns below (3 of each).
Stay tuned for more holiday designs coming soon!
