One of my favorite rites of spring is watching the Dogwoods (Cornus florida) flower. As a kid, they were everywhere here in the mid Atlantic and are an indigenous plant to boot. Sadly, a virulent fungus is slowly decimating the population so here's our effort to keep those fond memories alive. Printed with a light touch, there's plenty of texture without the currently fashionable crushing of the paper. This is printed on Crane's Lettra 100% cotton paper and accompanied by an envelope of same manufacture and material. Size is 4.25" x 5.5" and is top folded with a blank interior. #2506
This card started life as a personalized notecard. We think it stands on its own as a stock (depersonalized?) card as well. We didn't "knock out" where one color overlaps another, which is our usual practice. The effect here of two somewhat transparent colors overlapping makes a new one (in this case turquoise, which, if you buy into this kind of thing, is said to be the cool color for this year!).
A2 - top fold - blank interior - Lettra Pearl White 300gsm. We tried overprinting two colors on this one and didn't "knock out" the places where the colors overlap. The results here are interesting but, we did one with two very light colors and got the areas where the paper is hit with two colors to give a nice blend of both colors into another one. I learned about this technique from a talented printer in the UK. If I can find the card, I'll shoot it and post it here.
