Mother's Day!

Mother's Day is here and cards are a classic way to tell mom how you feel. Here are a few cards by some craftsmen I admire:

First, a really cute letterpress card by Pup and Pony Press of Long Beach, CA. I just love letterpress and this illustration is a perfect combination of sweetness and sincerity done in a charming retro style.

Next is this Mother's Day gift tag from Hello Clementine of London. This is a digital file you can print out yourself onto cardstock. Love the utilitarian sentimentality.

This pop up Pink Rose card, by Cookie Bits is really great! Paper engineering is so cool!

I also really love this Mommy and Baby Love Birds card by Simply Cute by Karen of Marlborough, Massachusetts. Simply charming!

Happy Mother's Day!


  1. i love the mum card! that style reminds me of the cute embroidery designs you'd see on flour sack towels from the 40s and 50s.

  2. I hadn't thought of the towels! It does have a clean and sunny grandma's kitchen feel to it. And they are local to our old hood of LB.

  3. Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigs? I'm buying my cigarettes from Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 60% on cigarettes.
