“Mistletoe” is a cozy holiday greeting card, printed on the most beautiful, fluffy handmade paper. It really is wonderful to hold, touch and look at.
In some countries, the tradition says that a man is allowed to kiss any woman standing beneath a sprig or bouquet of Mistletoe, and vice versa. A young lady caught under the mistletoe could not refuse to give a kiss. This was supposed to increase her chances of marriage since a girl who wasn't kissed could still be single next Christmas. According to ancient custom, after each kiss, one berry is removed until they are all gone.
In Romania, we bring mistletoe inside our homes to attract good luck, health, and prosperity into the New Year.
So we thought that giving a mistletoe card to someone dear is just right!
The card is folded and is blank inside for a handwritten message.
It comes with a green or rust cotton card envelope, die-cut in-house, hand-formed, and glued by us.
We letterpress print in-house on Bernadette, our Heidelberg letterpress machine. We wish you could meet her in person. She is a huge metal beast, with complicated mechanisms, but she is just so Elegant. Such a beautiful sight to see. She is Magnificent.
