Gorgeous Christmas Card Calligraphy White Ink on Red Envelopes

White Calligraphy on Red Envelopes by Letter Be On Etsy
These days receiving mail is relatively rare, unless you mean email, so what could make it even more special? Gorgeous Calligraphy! I sent out thank you cards to my vendors and hired the services of Lesley at Letter Be On Etsy  to add that totally amazing touch of class that comes with handwritten calligraphy addressing. Sshe did gorgeous white addressing on red envelopes (supplied by me) with opaque white ink. I especially love how the address goes off the edge of the envelope!

Red envelopes look amazing for Christmas Cards - you can find them on Amazon - I recommend 70lb paper because it's thicker and feels more luxurious - like these: 100 Red A2 Envelopes - at the time of this writing they're around $10 for 100 which is a great deal!
Combine them with some cool stamps, and your letter recipients will be in love! I wrote a post a couple years ago about where to find great postage: Where to buy Vintage Stamps Online

Martha's Vineyard Save the Dates with Map and Tiny Heart

Martha's Vineyard Save the Date for Edgartown Wedding

These Martha's Vineyard Save the Dates feature an antique map of the Vineyard that I discovered in a stockpile of decades-old maps - this one was drawn for automobile tourists back when driving was a total novelty in the early 20's. These days you need to make reservations weeks, if not months in advance to bring your car over on the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, I don't know how they did it back then! Maybe they had open top cars to rent?

The original colors for this save the date are slightly different, as shown below, but you can also request a save the date with your own customizations - for instance, we changed the map color to navy, we added a pink heart and did white envelopes instead of navy - they came out beautifully!



Anyway, enough about cars! This lovely wedding took place in Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard - one of the most charming towns in New England, with a reception at the gorgeous Harbor View Hotel - so perfect!:

Beautiful Sand Dollar Save the Dates

Sand Dollar Save the Dates from Concertina Press

These Sand Dollar Save the Dates were the perfect fit for this couple's oceanside wedding at the stunning Seascape Resort in Aptos, California. What a great venue! The weddings at Seascape take place on a bluff overlooking the ocean - one of the wonderful things about getting married by the sea is that every time you look at the ocean, it reminds you of the wonderful day you got married. PLUS you have a nice anniversary destination!

If you're interested in ordering Sand Dollar Save the Dates for your beach wedding, feel free to order a sample on my website, or contact me if you have any questions.

Classic Anchor Rehearsal Dinner Invitations

If you're looking for some classic nautical Rehearsal Dinner invitations, look no further! I designed these Anchor rehearsal dinner invitations working from my Anchor Save the Date at a special request for a couple holding their rehearsal dinner at the Barley Neck Inn in Orleans on Cape Cod.

The thing I love about this design is that it goes with several of my nautical wedding invitation designs, including the Compass Wedding Invitations and Cape Cod Wedding Invitations.

I can modify the colors to suit your wedding too, from aqua to light blue - even purple!

Funny Narwhal Christmas Cards

Funny Narwhal Christmas Cards from Concertina Press
Looking for some adorable nautical Christmas cards to send to friends and family this holiday season? Look no further - you can "Deck the Narwhals with boughs of holly" this winter with my Narwhal Christmas Cards.

They are available as individual cards and also in packs of 8 at a reduced price. They're great for anyone who loves a good pun (or maybe anyone who claims to hate them but secretly loves them...you know who you are!) They're printed on a lovely, lightly textured "linen" cardstock with beautiful vivid color - I get them printed locally here in Florida and the paper and envelopes are made in the USA, too!

I created this design using the same 200 year old narwhal illustration featured in my Narwhal Notecards:
...only this time, he's bringing holiday cheer with a holly wreath!

Did you know that a narwhal's tusk, which can grow up to NINE FEET LONG, are thought to be a sensory organ that helps the male narwhal sense chemical and physical changes to the water they live in? The tusk is actually a front left tooth!
"The narwhal is the only example documented where teeth are shown to have the ability to constantly sense environmental stimuli that would not necessarily be considered a threat," he said.
"If you were looking for an ideal and fascinating tooth to study there's no question this would be it." - BBC Nature - Narwhal's Tusk is Super Sensitive
It also happens to be perfect for delivering a beautiful holly wreath!

Tropical Fish and Sea Turtle Wedding Invitations

Parrotfish tropical wedding invitations from Concertina Press
I recently learned to scuba dive, and it was just as amazing as I imagined it would be underwater! A little scary at first, but I was quickly distracted by all the amazing fish and coral on the sea floor - and so inspired to create new nautical wedding invitations for Concertina Press - here's me diving around a shipwreck:
Florida is a popular breeding ground for sea turtles, and in my beachside community we use special light shades on the street lights closest to the beach so the baby turtles won't be confused when they hatch, mistaking the streetlights for the moon, and crawling in the wrong direction. We also have a 24 hour rescue hotline for sea turtle standings!

These Sea Turtle wedding invitations are the perfect fit for your beachside wedding, and they have red coral RSVPs, and optional sea star information cards.
