Feather & Black Photo Shoot

We were very happy to see lots of our greetings cards featured in the new Feather & Black catalogue. Our Bite Me!, Charlie Cat, Mabel, Bert, Rocket & Archie cards were all used throughout the shoot, for their website and brochure.
We got a lovely mention here on their blog. We love the way they have framed our cards to make some quick and easy, and very cool artwork to decorate a kids bedroom!
You can buy all the cards online here.
Check out the Feather & Black fab new Kids range here: www.featherandblack.com
Blast Off!

"If you like sending unique cards, you can’t get more unique than The Hummingbird Card Company, but they don’t just do cards they also do stationary.

Their creations include beautifully delicate and detailed images which have been laser cut into the card, leaving a lace- like structure to form the image and then backed with coloured card bringing the colour through the front design. They have some great kids’ designs to choose from, like Robots and Russian Dolls or the yummy pear and apple. These cards are so beautiful you will want to keep them forever, pin them up on a notice board or even frame them, a simple but effective way to make unique pictures to hang on your kid’s bedroom walls, (we love the apple image used in the Brighton bed room set) or decorate a bedside table or chest in a picture frame just like the Rocket image in our Noah dorm room.

Accessorising and decorating has never been so easy, some may say it's child's play"!

Black & White

Your really can't go wrong with the chic colour combination of Black & White. Classic and contemporary, it looks modern and fresh yet timeless. There are so many ways you can play with this colour theme. We have noticed alot of black dresses popping up too, we are loving the idea of having bridesmaids in black...a lovely contrast to the brides white dress, and softened with crisp white flowers and green foliage or some really bright bouquets to contrast with the monochrome. Beautiful! See some lovely ideas here.

Our gorgeous gatefold card looks stunning in White Alabaster textured card, with black inlay, black ribbon and a dusting of diamante's.
