wonderment

I’m a true believer that it’s never too late to send a card and in the midst of Hannukah and with Christmas two weeks away you still have plenty of time to fill up the mailbox down on the corner. So here’s a few of our favorites…

Mitten

This handmade, one-of-a-kind Mitten card from Gold Teeth Brooklyn brings out the childish wonder in everyone.

These simple words say it all. I love the gold foil on bright white paper selected by sugar-paper.

 

As a child Over the River and Through the Woods was sung numerous times on our way headed east towards Manitowoc, WI for the holidays. This card pulls a heart string. It’s good to see this song holds meaning to Campbell Raw Press as well.  You can even have this one personalized.
