Happy Birthday Cards!

To add to my collection of letterpress card designs, I designed two different happy birthday cards. Both include handlettering by me!  For the first card, I once again attempted to mix some inks together.  I was going for a light green, but it came out more as an olive green.  It worked out though, because I ended up giving this card to my dad for his 59th birthday!

For the second card, I was going for a bright orange and it came out great!  I've found that I'm either getting the colors just right or I'm slightly off.

I really like the orange ink! Next up, I think I'm going to add something else to the design, I'm thinking confetti in different ink colors or balloons.  Wish me luck!
