This International Women’s Day, let’s not overlook all those great women-owned businesses out there — and I can’t think of a better one to highlight than Shades of Expression Designs. Run by three generations of women, this enterprise is a face of the American dream come alive.
And, its newest release is downright dreamy and dynamic. The range takes on two big trends within stationery — watercolor and gold embossed lettering — and combines them with great effect.
The cards run the gamut from watercolor vistas — evoking the rich ombré effects of sunrises and sunsets. Stripes and abstractions also abound and are a lovely counterpoint to the glimmer of gold.
