Shameless self promotion - the holiday edition!
Here at Cartolina, Christmas is almost over! Any of you involved in the wholesale stationery and gift industry are probably pretty exhausted right now - I know how you feel! We've been putting in 10 hr days for the last few weeks. So now that all the holiday cards are out at the retailers I am ready for the reveal - Ta Da! Here is our 2009 holiday collection. I based the designs on a couple of vintage Xmas tree light boxes that I had - with die cut windows on the lids(sort of a shadow-box effect.) It's hard to see in these pictures but all of this year's christmas cards are GLITTERED - and so is everything else in the studio now! There's glitter everywhere! The cards are available as single cards with sparkly gold envelopes and also as boxed sets - 8 in a box. The cards are 100% recycled with recycled envelopes and recycled kraft boxes. And, as always, our products are FSC certified too. We also have matching glittered gift tags that come in pretty packs of 8 and retail for $5.99. You can check for retailers near you on our retailer's page and if you'd like more specific info on where to buy them you can email me.



Just between you and me, this is my favourite in this year's collection - Geisha's in the snow.

What a great idea to do the shadowbox effect. It looks very realistic! I like them all.

I think we need some glittery studio pictures :) These looks great, Fiona. All of the hard work paid off! Can't wait to go to my local-ish Anthropologie!!

Oh Fiona, it's about time you shamelessly promoted yourself in your blog;-)

Yes that geish card - love it. I spent a few Christmases in Japan, stayed in a ryokan (traditional hotel) we wore kimonos and getas (wooden sandals) and felt very Japanese. Very nostalgic!
