stationery fit for a queen

I'm not giving these away for free, but in the spirit of the Makery, I wanted to write a few words about the latest addition to my more paper-based Etsy shop.


Folded notecards created from prints created from imagery from Sofia Coppola's film, Marie Antoinette - fitting, no? As I continued to sift through all the stuff we've accumulated during our nearly four years in Beantown this past weekend, I came across a couple of large sheets of screenprinted paper, proofs for the wallpaper I've blogged about a couple of times already. I didn't want to just toss them so I decided to make stationery from the best bits of the print proofs, layering a lighter weight blank text page inside and pairing each card with a handmade translucent, magenta envelope.


Each note is packaged in a clear cellophane sleeve and available for sale at three bucks a pop.


The listing is for one note only, but I have a dozen of these so just "convo" me, as they say in Etsy-land (short for conversation), if you'd like more and I'd be happy to create a custom listing for you. Collect all twelve!

Thank you! I couldn't just toss those print proofs! And making these cards made me seriously antsy to start printing again...Hopefully I can work on a small setup after this move dust settles a bit.

Awesome, earth is nothing without art. Its really a very interesting hobby. Even capturing a picture is also an art. Let parents in every family become the standard of good taste on the example of home clothes, which is very accessible for children's perception. Of particular note in the family image are the physiognomic and vocal effects in the behavior of the parents. Unfortunately, many parents do not deal with these problems enough, while children feel the attitude towards themselves by the facial expressions and voice of their parents. Children of all ages need a friendly facial expression and voice, not whipping them like a whip. Here we recall the foreign experience in setting a smile for business people, as well as the statement of A.S. Choosing the right art material is also not as easy as we think as i am also searching for a good art supplies online guts(.)pk/shop/category/art-supplies/ via a stationery store guts.pk. Anyways, thanks for sharing the nice piece of stuff with us.
