Watercolor Kilim Rug Art Prints & Cards by Golden Fox Goods

Kilim Rug 6 Art Print by Golden Fox Goods

I am really digging these very cool watercolor kilim rug art prints from Golden Fox Goods. The colors are just fantastic, and I’m lovin’ the organic lines and texture that’s so prominent throughout the collection. Matching cards are also available, along with two kilim patterned gift wrap designs, and I think it would be totally awesome to give a completely kilim-themed gift. Give an art print or prints as the gift with a coordinating kilim card and wrap the package in kilim patterned gift wrap!

10th Birthday Party Invitations for Color Box Design & Letterpress

I love seeing projects that designers and stationers create for themselves. Projects for ourselves and/or our own businesses can be some of the most challenging, but they can be extremely fun, too!

Letterpress & Die Cut Party Hat Invitations by Color Box Design & Letterpress

Color Box Design & Letterpress recently turned 10 years old (a big congrats on reaching this milestone!), and they marked this very special occasion with an old fashioned backyard birthday party. Since their business is custom invitations and stationery, they had to have an invitation that showcased their talents, and I can tell that this was one of those extremely fun projects. The results are so festive, the perfect mix of cute and classic.

Letterpress & Die Cut Party Hat / Gift Box Invitations by Color Box Design & Letterpress

Here is what Rhonda from Color Box had to say about this fantastic project:

The invitation was mailed in a custom envelope that was letterpressed on both sides, die cut, and hand assembled, with both vintage and current post office stamps adorning the outside. The design and printing of the invitation was done by me, Rhonda Camp Warren, the owner of Color Box, and the addressing was done by Traci Andrejko, one of our Color Box team members.

Inside the envelope were 3 cards: one in the shape of a party hat that shared the occasion for the party; a second in the shape of a gift that gave the details; and a third card that gave information about The Birthday Party Project, for whom we were collecting donations at the party.

We were thrilled with the outcome of this venture. Our guests made monetary donations, and we donated handmade tutus and lots of party supplies! All in all, it was a fun and worthwhile event.
