The Paper Elixir holiday greeting line have officially hit the shelves at Make My Day on Nov 23, 2007! Woo hoo!
Again, I have to thank Rita, friend and owner of Make My Day, not only for agreeing to carry my cards, but also designing such a wonderful display for them, right at the front of her store. She even put some in the windows (sorry the pictures didn't turn out too good so you won't see them here- you'll have to go check out the store yourself). For all the work she put in, I just hope she would actually sell at least a couple of them before they hit the dollar bin on boxing day.
Honestly though, I'm pretty happy with the 2 lines produced for the season. First, there's the "Metallics" line, which features a mix of richly-colored Stardream metallic paper and vellum, depicting falling snowflakes in graphic multi-layered designs- the 3-dimensional layering is pretty cool, but of course you can't see that in the pictures, so, again, you'll have to visit the store to check out the real thing yourself. :)
The other line is dubbed the "Natural Elements" line, made of interesting suede and cork paper. These papers cost like an arm and a leg, but they have such a warm and tactile texture to them- they invite you to touch them- that when I saw them at Flax, I knew I had to own them all *sigh*.
And to top it off, my dear friends (after spending a festive but chaotic Thanksgiving together just the night before), got up bright and early and dragged their husbands and pooches to celebrate the launch of my cards with me.
There's no better feeling in the world to have people you love around you to celebrate the birth of your child- or greeting card line for that matter, same thing.
