Red Velvet

This pic was taken while we were gluing the flocked wallpaper to my business cards. The designer showed me five different card treatments, but I immediately knew it had to be the hand. It just says it all. It’s ghostly and gothic, hints of an invitation to a Victorian boudoir (she’s not wearing gloves–oh my!) and is reminiscent of vintage advertising. There’s also something slightly strange about it, and for a girl who likes her Edwards Gorey and her Gogols Bordello, it’s perfect.
