Downloadable-DIY Valentine Mandala by Kathleen Cooper Fine Papers
This Valentine can be yours – and here’s how!
Simply click on this link to download the artwork, which is set up to print
two up on 8.5 x 11 card stock. Cut your sheet right down the middle and you’ll
have two cards which fit perfectly into A-9 envelope (8.75 x 5.75).
I used Paper Source card stock and the matching envelope. You can line your
envelope with pre-cut liners available at paper-source.com. I made my own
liner with a template purchased from a local Paper Source store.
Just trace and cut! This way you have unlimited options for liner paper.
This custom Valentine was designed by Kathleen Cooper at
Kathleen Cooper Fine Papers in Santa Barbara, California
Let me introduce Jackie Robinson, designer of this simply elegant letter pressed wedding invitation suite – and owner of 42 Pressed. You can find this invitation, and more from Jackie upon visiting Kathleen Cooper Fine Papers in Santa Barbara.
As you can see, the Jackie O’ suite is featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2013
Elum Designs brings us the Alchemy suite, flooded with pattern. Adding brightly colored edge painting to this otherwise quiet invitation makes a stunning impact. This is just one of many beautifully designed wedding invitation suites from Elum available in my Santa Barbara studio.
Elegant in any ink color, the Carneros Suite from Dauphine Press highlights the deep impression of Letterpress printing with a sophisticated and bold monogram. Choose hand-painted edges for a pop of bright color along with a signature envelope lining! See this and other inspired designs from Dauphine at Kathleen’s Santa Barbara paper studio.
‘Darjeeling’ is just one of twelve stunning new Wedding Invitation designs from Elum Couture. Found in Santa Barbara only at Kathleen Cooper Fine Papers. I invite you to come in for a visit. You must see to believe the exquisiteness!

Letterpress Wedding Invitation from one of my most favorite vendors – Bella Figura. “With a pairing of our sand and surf inks, Tara Hogan’s New Horizon letterpress wedding invitation design is looking rather fabulous. We love that the clean cut, contemporary look is played up with an over sized block font for the bride and groom’s names.”
