Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

Rose envelopes

Valentines for a calligraphy exchange, these are going to friends who are also married men. I told them to warn their spouses in advance, they assured me they did and challenged me to ‘bring it on.’ Hence all the ultra girly flowers and flourishes and roses and things. Don’t worry, I included a little something for their ladies in the envelopes :)

Oh, and the back is also super decorated!
