Pennie Post Stationery Subscription August Reveal August 15 2014, 0 Comments

The newest Pennie Post collection was inspired by one of the simplest patterns. For this month’s “Seeing Stripes” collection, we used simple line forms to create three very different designs. 
August’s “Seeing Stripes” mailing contained: 


This blank folded note is a mixture of sweet girly florals, and some spunk! I started with a simple line drawing, added watercolor and then had some fun mixing up the pattern with stripes. You can see more about the making of this card here.


A vibrant herringbone pattern makes up this "many thanks" note card. The patterned back side and rounded corners add extra special details. A fun wrap around address label completes this set.


This little enclosure is business card sized and perfect for gift giving!


Our Overlapping Stripes Birthday Card with pale pink stripes is sweet, yet simply sophisticated.
