Vintage style woodtype and letterpress printing is very fashionable on cards in the shops at the moment and I like some of the simple and stylish designs.
I made a card with this in mind for Dad, although it can obviously be easily translated for Mum or anyone else for that matter.
Opting for a black and white colour scheme on this occasion I started with a sheet of black A4 card and folded a card blank with a bone folder, adding a white panel towards the right hand side of the card. I also included a white card insert to give a heavier weight feel and a more suitable writing surface for the greeting.
The card topper was prepared with an ATC sized piece of black card decorated with white die cut and hand cut letters, black rubber stamping onto small white pieces of card
and a single 'DAD' handwritten with a white gel pen on black card to fill in the last tiny little gap and all in different fonts and styles.
