Letterpress Birthday Card: Toast

This bear is my mom, who cheerfully freestyles concoctions from various cup remnants at the end of the day.  She'll mix a Job's tears cereal-y powder drink, orange juice, wine, coffee, umeboshi syrup, turpentine, etc.  She enjoys my disapproval.

This original design was hand-painted with Chinese paintbrushes and calligraphy ink on premium raw rice paper, and then made into a letterpress plate and individually pressed on a vintage flatbed cylinder press, onto soft cotton paper.

A1/4-Baronial card size (3.5 x 4.875 inches).  Paired with gold envelope.

Blank inside.
