Suite Spotlight – Marinwood Letterpress Holiday Card

Just last month we released our 2013 Timeless Custom Holiday Collection of letterpress and foil stamped holiday cards. We wanted to take some time and share with you all that you can create using our Holiday Collection. The process works just like our Custom Wedding Portfolio where you can build any design to suit your style. You can use any of our existing designs {holiday or wedding!} or build a design from the ground up using all of the design elements offered in our design library.

The Marinwood Holiday trifold we are highlighting today is a great example of taking inspiration from our existing designs and adding personal touches to create a unique-to-you design. Using our Marinwood save the date trifold as inspiration, this holiday card and moving announcement takes on a completely new look. The jolly message on the first panel, in standout vintage lettering, is a welcomed greeting for friends and family during the holidays. The recipient is then treated to a sweet surprise when they unfold the card to reveal a gorgeous 2-color letterpress vintage pattern printed on the center panel. Just like the inspiration piece, when placing a family photo over the center, the detailed design acts as a decorative frame. The last panel is used for another timely greeting and a smartly placed moving announcement. Color palette is key to this design as well – the perfectly selected red raspberry and willow inks complete the festive look!

Creating a unique design with our Custom Wedding Portfolio can be a very fun process – one that always results in a gorgeous piece of stationery that is an extension of you! Teaming up with one of our exclusive retailers, like For Heaven’s Sake in Beaumont, Texas who helped create this gorgeous design, is the perfect place to start.

Another great part of the process is finding inspiration to help you define your favorite design elements, color palette and overall look and feel of your new card. Take a peek at our Pinterest boards for even more inspiration like the elements our design team pulled together for the perfect vintage holiday card, just like the Marinwood Holiday trifold.
