Mew Paper Arts Makes Wonderfully Charming Greeting Cards, Invitations & Stationery!9:09 am
A lot of care went into these cards, as you'll read on her website:
"Every item in the Mew Paper Arts and Mew Baby studio has been handmade with pure intentions for the environment, the artist and you, the consumer. That means human hands created that charming character in the drawing, folded the paper it's printed on, squirted on that dashing sprinkle of glitter and sealed your package with a lot of love. When you buy a handmade gift not only are you supporting a quirky gal and her fat cat, you're giving a gift that has its own tiny heart."
You can't help but love this gal - and her cards!
Take Sassy Girl Notecards for example. How cute are these?
12 notecards depict girls in various states of fun - girl in the sparkly purple dress soaking her feet, girl with towering hat boxes, etc. Perfect for sending to your girlfriends whether they are near or far.
The illustrations are originally done in colored pencil and then laser printed onto white stock and embellished with a touch of sparkle. Each set of 12 includes 4 each of 3 designs and measure 4.25 x 5.5 when folded. it comes in an acrylic box with white envelopes, tied with ribbon.
I'm using up my Festive Lantern Stationery - I kind of want to hold onto it, but at the same time I want to share these beauties with friends and family. The thick shimmering white stock make them extra celebratory, I think.
I love the whimsy and bold colours of the Space Oddity Notecards. Alissa has created the cutest alien ever!
And check out the sweetest little hedgehogs in her Hedgehogs are for Lovers cards! These little brown wonders sit at the edge of subtly metallic pink paper with rounded corners and make the perfect thank you note or just a wonderful way to say hi! I'm going to be ordering these by the skidload!
Under the Valentine Cards section, you'll find cards for love, but thanks to Alissa leaving them blank inside, you can use them any day of the year - which is brilliant!
I can't get enough of the Flirt Cards - sexy and cute (and makes me want to be a redhead!) - and the Sealed with a Kiss Cards, which says it all.
I love the sheer joy that comes across in these cards, and there's lots more - birthday, invitations, gift enclosures!
Alissa does custom work as well, but I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for in her extensive collection. You should look at her absolutely stunning Invitations & Announcements - if only I had something to announce or invite! She dooes it all - Bar & Bat Mitzvah Invites, Birth Announcements, Adult & Children Party Invitations, Boxed Cards, New Address Announcements, Recipe Cards and so much more!
While I really cherish each individual card, I really admire Alissa's ability to offer different styles throughout her collection. Often these days, people do "girly" cards and that's all they do. With Mew Paper Arts, you get a little bit of everything - sweet illustrations, modern designs, funny, flirty, charming, classic, original - all homemade, all done with love and care.
That's just about the greatest thing, isn't it?
