We have been so excited to produce our very first letterpress Easter card this year, especially because we are just so happy with how it turned out. When we sat down to concept it, the design idea came almost immediately and then it was just a matter of finishing touches. That cotton tail just makes it, doesn't it? Plus, who doesn't love fat-bottomed bunny rabbits?
We finally posted it to our online shop and delivered to our local retail partners today, and have been singing the classic Gene Autrey hit, "Peter Cottontail", all darned day. The cuteness is killing us, and our shops agree. One actually *squealed* when she saw the card; you know you've got a hit when people are visibly excited to see it.
We hand printed this particular card on our Challenge 15MP press, "Dottie", then affixed actual cotton balls to make the bunny bottom. There is a process video forthcoming, just as soon as we can get it edited. In the meantime, hope you enjoy smiling about this one as much as we do!
Hoppy Happy Easter!
