we thought this year’s connelly-newman realty holiday card was perfect to share on this snowy winter day! just like their twenty thirteen card, we partnered with an illustrator to create a custom painting for the front of the card. mandy curtis from myrtle & lloyd painted a cozy stone home glowing with warmth on a cold winter’s night. they selected the poem stopping by woods on a snowy evening, by robert frost, for the interior. the cards were mailed in a vibrant rust colored envelope and sealed with a custom mailing label.
we love working with illustrators to create a one of a kind piece! we are featuring these two holiday cards together because they both involved custom illustrations. the front of the folded holiday card for connelly-newman realty was illustrated by meg hunt. we were lucky to work with her on bridget + tom’s invite last year and thought she’d be perfect for this commission. the client requested a cozy stone house typical of the main line area in pennsylvania set in a snowy scene. the interior of the card held a poem called winter time written by robert louis stevenson.
liz, a former bride of ours, has an incredible sense of humor and came up with the idea of a naughty santa card for her and her husband to send to their friends. our college friend and incredibly talented illustrator, peter wonsowski took on the job of depicting the jolly man caught in the act!
happy december! getting into the holiday spirit with custom illustrated + letterpress holiday cards.
with the wind howling outside today, we thought bridget + tom’s cozy winter illustrated wedding suite would be perfect to share. they will be wed this january at the the fabulous terrain at styer’s in glen mills. for their invitations, the couple wanted to carry over the warm feeling of their mitten save the date and continue with the whimsical inspiration of the golden books. we were able to create their own story with the help of illustrator meg hunt. she created the most beautiful custom illustrations for the invitation, rsvp postcard and accommodation card. each piece had a different wintry scene in the couple’s palette of ivory, brown, rust and red. our favorite part was the adorable portrait of the bride + groom. everything was stacked and held together with our favorite cotton-wrapped twine from angela liguori.
