Cable Knit: Letterpress Folded Cards & Envelopes (6ct)

Red Bird Ink

Handmade cable knit pattern folded cards!

For this adorable set of folded cards we were inspired by hand knit cozy sweaters and scarves.  We painstakingly drew a cable knit pattern, not knowing the mental challenge we would face deconstructing the pattern stich by stich! When that was all finished, we used the drawing to create our raised image printing plates. Next, we set up our 2000lb, 100 year old Chandler and Price Letterpress to print and slightly emboss our paper.  For a subtle effect, we hand mixed a warm silver gray ink to print on pearl white 100% cotton paper and pressed the image deep into the paper so you can feel the knit pattern if you run your finger across the surface of the card.  Once the printing was finished we trimmed down each card then put them back through the press one-by-one to get a perfect side fold crease.

The result is the perfect place to share your warmest holiday wishes!

Happy Holidays!
