Postco by Kelly Hyatt for Lagom

Postco Collection | Kelly Hyatt for Lagom

I am completely taken with the eye-catching cards in the Postco collection by Kelly Hyatt for Lagom. The über awesome collection features on-trend designs with a minimalist modern aesthetic, and I am digging the mix of color, which ranges from vivid black, neon green, hot pink, electric teal, and sunshine yellow to soft, mint green and blush pink, with plenty of debossed and embossed gold accents. I lurve the dimension that the embossing gives to the cards, and I like that it’s used in some fun and unexpected ways – for a bear’s body, a baby carriage, a birthday train.

Here are some of my favorites from the collection, and be sure to head on over to Lagom for much, much more.
