love for lilly & coco

{all cards by lilly & coco}

I had the pleasure of meeting with a fellow Portland paperista last week. Lilly, of Lilly & Coco, and I have been twitter friends for awhile and she had sent me one her wonderful vintage-themed Christmas cards over the holidays. Through what I refer to as "the magic of twitter" we made a date to meet in person. Lilly's line is truly delightful! I love the look and presence of her cards. I also discovered that she was one of the pioneers of bringing back the "Keep Calm and Carry On" postcard reproductions into the hands of etsy shoppers. I highly recommend reading the brief interview with Lilly's mom, who is a survivor of the WWII bombing in London, which is where the propaganda posters originated from.

the 80's stylings of dude and chick

{letterpress cards by dude and chick}

I've been meaning to blog about Dude and Chick for several months. I spotted their line at Ecru and couldn't help but snatch up a few of these bad boys. I was chatting with one of the owners of Issues, last night and we came to the subject of this totally tubular line, therefore it was meant to be today's post! If the eighties theme isn't your bag, they have tons of other designs - take a look-see right here.

v-day pick: no. 7

Absolutely loving this card from BirdDog Press, I find the use of vintage wood type irresistible! I had the pleasure of meeting Allison, proprietress of BirdDog, at the National Stationey Show last year - truly a talented designer and printmaker.
