Oh So Beautiful Paper x Mixbook (and a giveaway!)

Well, this is an exciting day! I’m absolutely thrilled to announce my brand new collaboration with Mixbook: holiday photo cards! I’ve enjoyed working with Mixbook over the last year, including at this year’s Paper Party, and I was completely delighted when they invited me to create two designs as part of their Holiday Photo Card Collection! Today I’m sharing both holiday photo card designs with all of you, AND we’re giving a Mixbook credit to one lucky reader below!

Oh So Beautiful Paper x Mixbook Holiday Photo Cards

I wanted the cards to be able to serve as both holiday cards and New Year’s cards (since I can never get my own cards out before Christmas), and I wanted the design to appeal to those of you who might be looking for a fun and whimsical but decidedly non-traditional design. For the first design, the Mixbook team and I really wanted to capture some of the iridescent and holographic vibe from this year’s Paper Party back in May, with some sparkly gold elements and bold brush lettering for an extra dose of holiday cheer. The second design features a barely-there pink watercolor wash behind the photo with clean and modern type selections. They’re both available for purchase from Mixbook right here!

Oh So Beautiful Paper x Mixbook Holiday Photo Cards

The cards are digitally printed on ethically sourced paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the Rainforest Alliance on your choice of satin finish, signature matte, or premium paper and with the choice of square or rounded corners. You can even add in matching address labels and holiday gift tag stickers!

Oh So Beautiful Paper x Mixbook Holiday Photo Cards

The cards come with Mohawk 70 lb white envelopes with an option for pre-printed envelope addresses, but I couldn’t resist bringing in a few gorgeously calligraphed envelopes by Anne Robin Calligraphy.

I had so much fun working with Mixbook to create this mini collection – I hope you love the designs as much as I do! To celebrate the new designs, we’re giving $50 Mixbook credit to one lucky reader that you can use for your own holiday photo cards! Just enter via Rafflecopter below!
