I come back to this song again and again. I suppose anyone who heard it as a kid has some kind of nostalgia about it. It was first Friday a few weeks ago, so I set this to print at the art center and then brought it home and printed the lock up on the C&P machine in my kitchen. Here is the lock up of the letters together in the chase.

I used an antique gold ink and some grey paper that I had gotten on sale at Paper Source. I was saving the cards for awhile and am glad I found a reason to use them.

Here is a video of the printing in my kitchen.

I ordered some matching gold envelopes online. I looked for some that had the same darker vintage gold look instead of a bright envelope.

The cards came out wonderfully and are great to mail or simply to frame on their own (which I totally did in my guest room)
