Iris & Marie Fall 2018 Mailer Gift

I always like to send gifts a few times a year to vendors that support my business, & this fall I sent out these! I illustrated a floral wreath that included a bird at the top & letterpress printed that on Farmette Press 5 x 5 circle handmade paper. After printing, Leen Machine Calligraphy calligraphed each person’s initials & I watercolored the flowers & leaves to give added dimension & texture. I wanted to treat the vendors to a personalized gift they could frame & see how appreciated they are by Iris & me. Each gift was mailed out in a burgundy envelope with Frida Kahlo & Georgia O’Keefe vintage stamps from Little Postage House.
