Truly Smitten Holiday Cards

December 7th, 2010

I have to say, one of the best parts of the blog world is all the friends I’ve made online. I never thought I’d meet so many amazing people and make such true friends without actually ever meeting them face to face. But since I started Twig & Thistle nearly two years ago, my perspective has changed entirely.

I’m lucky enough to have connected with Sarah Kim-Puangsuvan of Truly Smitten through blog-land and we stay in touch through twitter and post comments. She’s such an amazing designer and her blog is my first visit every morning. You can only imagine how thrilled I was to receive her holiday card this year!

This two color paper ornament, adorned with an excerpt from the “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, is hand-illustrated, letterpressed and die-cut. It doesn’t get much better than this! Mailed in a red envelope and tied with red and white bakers twine, it’s possibly one of the most beautiful and favorite holiday cards I’ve ever received!

You can see more pictures of the card here and see more of Sarah’s brilliant work on the Truly Smitten Studio site. Thank you so much Sarah, I adore it! xoxox
