This amazing letterpress note card from Smock Paper is part of their incredible red and purple series of cards, gift wrap, boxes, pads, bags and more. I love the vivid colors and the saturated inks in their designs overall, but this one stood out from the rest! A fun color combo that doesn’t get a ton of play!
I started thinking about receiving this card as an invitation, and what kind of party would lie in wait. Something chic, fun and “gardeny”– red and purple flowers are a given, but what about the rest? Here are some ideas!
