I've just recently completed 2 orders of stationery for 2 different people who have just put single names on their stationery. Both clients wanted the look of the cards to be VERY simple. I think that it paid off. The top card we used a "Gravel" envelope and used a coordinating ink for the family's name. The second set of stationery, that I had William Arthur thermograph, has a very simple, clean and modern font which is a nice off-set to the patterned liners.

Wow - I have to say I had no idea that it had been almost a month since I had posted here! Yikes. Well, here goes. Good news is that I've been busy. Even better news is that my twins started nursery school this week, which means that I have really been getting some work done (umm - like a blog post...).
Loving this "school" thing!
One of the projects I completed this week was for a client who had ordered 2 baby boy gifts. She wanted simple, clean and classic. So I basically did theme and variation on stationery and calling cards. Both orders are on white card stock and the stationery has a light blue backing card. I love adding backing cards because it gives the card stock such heft, but it still subtle color. For one of the boys I did a monogram and name combination and the other I used a bunny motif. I think that stationery and calling cards is such a great personal and practical gift. I love to give this as birthday gifts for little people too (because who needs more plastic toys at this point?).
I have not actually notified my client that these are completed, because she herself had a baby the other night. I figure this is probably pretty low on their priority list right now. HA!
