Happy Valentine's Day!
Letterpress Cherub Card from vintage cuts.
I almost exclusively use old type (wood or metal) and old vintage cuts for the cards I create. I'm not a computer person so I don't make polymer plates that often. The last polymer plate I made was when I was in art school and we had to create everything photgraphically in reprography! We didn't have any computers for student use back then. I actually wrote my essays by hand!
Letterpress XO Card from wood type.
I have a cool colection of wood type. They are such wonderful tactile pieces of history!
This is a wee book I made with a letterpress printed cover. It's to write love notes in.
These LOVE tags are leterpressed wood type and a vintage cut.
