At Pressed we like to have a sense of humor about our designs. With that in mind, we letterpressed these naughty, Christmas coal cards. Based on a Victorian coal illustration, we spiced it up a little with the addition of a red bow and the word “Naughty.” On the inside, the card reads, “But it sure was fun! Merry Christmas.” This card actually required quite a bit of effort. Two runs through the press for the red and black on the outside and a third run through the press for the text on the inside. We think it was all worth it though! We have them for purchase in our Etsy shop.
And as a thank you to everyone who as shown us so much support over the last year, we have another FREE holiday card printable. Just click here to go to our website where you can download it. This card features the word “Merry Christmas” in a red and in a very ornate font. To add a little extra bling we added three Swarovski crystals in hot pink (you can purchase them from this site). We matched that with a hot pink envelope. Typically red is matched with green…however, we wanted to change things up a little by adding hot pink with the red instead. With think the combo looks pretty good! Again, this card is also 4.25×5.5 inches and will require an A2 envelope.
