♥ These fruity, diy paper medallions are such a fun idea for summer party decorating.

♥ These free, lumberjack-themed printables were originally for Father’s Day, but I think they’d be great for guy and dad-themed birthdays, too!

Lovely Greeting Cards by Minna May

Minna May Illustrated & Hand Lettered Greeting Cards

I’ve been an admirer of Minna So’s lovely work for quite a while now and am beyond excited to see that she has just launched her shop, Minna May, and first greeting card collection!

The new collection features Minna’s wonderful hand lettering and nature-inspired illustrations and patterns, and every design in the collection has me completely smitten. Each card is created, printed, and assembled in Minna May’s home studio in Seattle, and I’m sure that they’ll be making their way to paper lovers around the world very, very soon.

Here’s a peek at some of the lovely designs from Minna May’s greeting card collection, and you can see many more beautiful greetings over in the Minna May shop.
