Monica Wellington’s women’s clothing boutique, SPLENDIFEROUS, needed a new business card.
Splendiferous! had evolved over the years and needed a new card to reflect that. Keeping the dandelion puff, and “Splendiferous” spelled with an exclamation point in place of that “i,” in the middle, but it needed a new, chicer, interpretation that befit how the shop is now.
I printed her new designs half on white Cranes Lettra 600 gsm, and half on black super-thick, Museum Mount papers. We then gilded the lily and added gold, metallic edge gilding.
On the white paper, we used a pearlized white foil for the puff and on the black paper, we used gloss black foil for the puff. Everything else was in gold foil.
Dies made by Owosso Graphic Arts, of course!
