good morning! the sun is shining here in brooklyn and i’m in a celebratory mood because my good friend llubav just had a beautiful new bambina. besides being over the moon for her and her family, i always love getting to pick out gifts and cards for little ones. it’s so rare that i have a chance to do anything involving babies or children, that i relish the chance to go overboard. lately i’ve been going back and forth between this card (egg press) and this one (small square design) but now i think a new contender has been thrown in the mix: blackbird letterpress’ grizzy bear card. each grizzly card is letterpressed and die-cut so that you can insert a little special something into the bear’s arms. i’m the type of girl that can’t resist a card like that, because it can be used in so many different (ranging from cute to hilarious) ways for friends, so i think i might have to get this one whether i use it for llubav or not. i love the idea of slipping a little flower into the arms, or a sweet picture, or maybe a tiny handkerchief embroidered with say, a new baby girl’s initial? you can check out blackbird press’ new card right here and shop online ($6 each) right here. thanks, kathryn!
