Letterpress Holiday Greetings: 2012

It's  TIME  to start ordering holiday cards and, as usual, I'm looking into the newest batch of handmade letterpress cards on etsy!  The above card is by inkmeetspaper;  CLICK on info below each card for direct access 

          My favorite letterpress card this year is by LittleTreesStudio, above.  

  Creative, hand-lettered cards by wildinkpress  recount Handel's Messiah.

"Santa's Ornament" card, above, is by alohaletterpress

I love the simple, mod-flavor of shortgrassdesign's "Green and Red Tree," above.

vanoraletterpress "Joy" card, above; simple and elegant.

     Winter wonderland with a traditional greeting from enframingpress, above.

darlinpress' "Flora and Fauna" card, above, is stunning in its detail.

"Let it snow" letterpress card above designed by missive.

"Mice under the Mistletoe" above by PaintedTongueStudio...
what fantastic color and detail!

 You feel the peaceful silence of snow in the woods, above, in moontreepress's card, ...the snow, the woods, the fox, and the impression of its path in the snow where the ink is left out.

How fun is this little Santa with all of his trees, ornaments, candy canes and wrapped gifts?! (The card is byVIKink, one of my favorites!)

I love the stylized design above by dudeandchick!
