XOXO Gold Foil Fabric Backed Notecards

Though I realize it’s almost February, it still feels like a new year for me because I’m so excited for all the new projects up our sleeves for 2015!!

Here’s the first one we’re ready to share! We plan to expand the line of fabric stationery available in our Etsy store, and we’re starting with these gorgeous gold foiled “XOXO” cards.

Not only are these gold foiled on luxurious 110 lb. cotton paper, each card is backed by hand with beautiful metallic gold polka dot fabric!

These cards come in sets of 6, with 3 white fabric cards and 3 black fabric cards in each box. We’ve paired these cards with matching antique gold envelopes (just be sure to use a black Sharpie on these…other pens tend to fade away on this envelope).

And for that final “something special,” we have also included matching fabric tape seals to close up your envelopes! You get 3 white and 3 black, tucked neatly in a mini vellum envelope within each box.

We hope you love these as much as we do and that you’ll have fun sending them out to all your favorite people!

Sneak Peek Into The Inspired Wedding and a Giveaway!

I have a feeling some of you reading this are newly engaged—CONGRATULATIONS!!—and perhaps you’re not exactly sure where to start with the wedding planning. It can certainly be overwhelming, but I always encourage my clients to start with the big picture: What do you want your wedding day to feel like?

Before diving into the nitty gritty of peonies versus ranunculus, letterpress versus flat printing, sit down and really think about what feels the most like you as a couple. A formal and traditional ceremony and reception or something more casual and relaxed? Do you feel more like you in a grand ballroom or a rustic barn? Do your tastes run toward the sleek and modern or more sentimental and vintage?

Books and blogs are a wonderful source of inspiration as you try to figure out what is most you, and to help you get started, we’re giving away a copy of The Inspired Wedding: Seven Handcrafted Themes for Your Big Day! This book was compiled by Emma Arendoski, editor of Emmaline Bride, and it’s chock full of photos and inspiration grouped together by theme.

Inspired-Wedding-Final

It highlights seven wedding styles, including vintage, traditional, and beach to name a few, and shows you how to thread your theme seamlessly through every detail…bridesmaids dresses, hair styles, florals, decor, venues, and more!
