A new package

Here is the packaging that I'll be using for my holiday card sets. (you can click on the image to see it larger) I'm calling them "Presslings Parcels." I liked the idea of marrying a crafty/vintage look with modern labels. I'm using brown paper lunch bags and wrapping the cards in them. The flap of the lunch bag is held down with a long sticker made from patterned Florentine paper. It goes across the back and wraps around to peek into the front. There is also a label sticker on the front giving the name of the card set. I also decided to stay away from a red and green color scheme just because I wanted the packaging to be different than the expected. So, here I'm using a wintry blue with a gold.
This is my last post for a few weeks as Chris and I are off to Florence, Italy and then to the island of Curacao (next to Aruba). We decided life is short so we figured we'd use his sabbatical time for travel (and also our last big travels alone before we have children). My card sets will be for sale on November 10th and ready to ring in the holidays. I have lots of plans for my work in the future, so stay tuned! I'll post a few favorite pictures of our travels when we return. Thanks to Lynn for house-sitting for us, we appreciate it so much! Have a great couple of weeks and I'll be seeing you in this space soon! Ciao!
