First Christmas Card for the 2015 Season

This holiday card features Stardream Citrine metallic paper, which is imported from the Cordenons mill in Italy (archival quality and acid/lignin-free). The silver paper, combined with PMS 357 green holly leaves and PMS 485 red berries printed from early 20th Century American Type Founders ornaments, produces a shimmery, festive look and feel. The message is timeless, set in Trafton Script foundry types and printed in classic black ink. Two additional ornaments, most likely from about 1900, complement the text and add to the traditional and classy look of these cards. Inside is blank and the back panel includes interesting information about the card and my print shop. Each order of five comes with five red foil-lined envelopes personalized with your name and address. All inks are soy-based from Southern Ink Company.
