holiday save the date

a fun little save the date and holiday card rolled into one. the calligraphy was done (by me) in white, clean and crisp. and paired with my favorite stamp of all time... the reproduction inverted jenny. (nice work, post office)

using the mini books we saw on minted for an idea, i sized ours down and added some bespoke elements. each of our save the dates was letterpress printed in two colors on soft cotton paper...

a pretty charcoal gray with pops of cheery persimmon. a simple modern styled border was hand drawn for the front cover to frame a little photo. each of the photographs was printed on lustre photo paper and adhered to the cotton letterpress paper adding lovely layered detail.

the pages of each booklet were hand sewn together with silver thread in a simple zig zag. 
then, to top it all off, we added tiny silver jingle bells to each of the silver threads on the top.
