When we introduced our new paper stock in October, we couldn’t help but think Trifecta would make for the perfect holiday card, considering the green middle layer, ultra thick 24pt. stock, and beautiful silky finish on the surface. And we were right on the money…
We love the way designer Britt Davis‘ red, seasonal design pairs with the green seam in the middle. Britt, who designed a calendar on the back of her Trifecta postcards, manages to get a full year’s calendar on one side, while still keeping the design fresh and seamless. The front, of course, is all about her main message and image, with a bright red that stands out.
Here’s what Britt had to say about her project:
“2014 was full of turbulent events that made headlines across the globe. I wanted to send a simple and classic message to family, friends and clients in the hopes it would bring a little hope to the holiday season – “Peace on Earth”.
In the hopes recipients would hold on to the cards, I put a calendar on the back so they could use it all year. It is the perfect size for the office, pockets or just pinning up. For the design, I used Adobe illustrator to create the shapes and masked them to scrape book paper patterns. This was a theme I have been working with the past few years.
