Cherry Blossom and Monogram Letterpress Projects

My sister asked me awhile ago to make her another set of letterpress cards. So here they are! It's on a sage green card from Paper Source with strawberry pink ink for the cherry blossom branch. Her name was handset with 30 pt. Virtuosa and printed in gold. On the envelope, to put a cute little touch, I letterpressed a butterfly on the flap.

For the second project shown, I wanted to make a simple monogram for my two friends who are getting married. I have to say that the monogram was a bitch to hand-set. The type I used is Melior 48 pt. for the "W" and 24 pt. for the "K" and the "M." This was printed on Arturo lavender with metallic brown (bronze) ink.
