Happy Graduation Cards, Pt. 1

‘Tis the season for dads and grads, and this week I’m focusing on the grads part of the equation with a couple of roundups featuring fun greetings that celebrate new graduates. Happy graduation to all of the high school, college, vocational school, graduate school, and any other kind of school classes of 2014!

New from Ferme à Papier

Ferme a Papier

Ferme à Papier is introducing their new, wanderlust-inducing line at the National Stationery Show this year (booth #1936), and I’m totally digging the Tahitian Parisian vibe and the mix of painterly and geometric styles present throughout the collection. It’s a great mix of organic and structured elements, and the earthy palette gives the cards, calendars, notepads, and other paper goodies in the collection such a warm, modern vibe.

Yao Cheng Watercolors

Rose Bouquet Watercolor Print | Yao Cheng

Yao Cheng’s watercolors are absolutely stunning, and I love the mix of more traditional subjects, like the beautiful rose bouquet above, with modern abstracts and geometric pattern that you’ll find among the lovely art prints in her shop. Each original watercolor is printed on archival 192gsm paper stock with fade resistant ink.
