I came across Carina & her awesome custom design & stationary company, Little Bird Creative, a few months ago … and ever since then, have wanted to do a spot on her.

Little Bird Creative is a DC-based design company, working to fashion wistful stationary & design for ALL occasions!

Check out some of her work here:

Now let’s get to meet Carina ~ the leading lady behind Little Bird Creative … and check out her blog here.

1. How did Little Bird Creative come about?

When my husband’s job brought us to DC I was ecstatic to accept a position designing custom invitations and stationery at my favorite paper store. (I had spent the previous 10 years in corporate design at large financial firms.) When the company decided they would no longer offer custom design services I chose to strike out on my own. I enjoyed the process of working one-on-one with clients to design something special and unique to them. Then I learned how to letterpress, and I knew it was the next step for my career.

2. Where do you find your inspiration for projects?

So many things inspire me it’s hard to narrow it down, but here it goes, architectural details, nature and bright color are always at the top. I really enjoy layering design elements from different facets of life. It’s so much more interesting.

3. What do you look for in clients?

The best clients are interested in creating for the big picture. Their wedding stationery needs to compliment (not match) all the bold details their guest will see on their “big day”.

4. What song can you currently not get enough of?

I tend to like positive upbeat songs. Something I can sing along to (not that anyone wants to hear me). I am still into Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” because it keeps me energized.


  1. Gorgeous! When I read the bit about corporate paper goods, I immediately thought to myself “I wonder if she worked for DunderMifflin?” But I digress. Lovely stationery! That last design is definitely my favorite.

  2. I absolutely LOVE Carina’s work. She’s not only super professional but also technically knowledgeable. So glad you featured her!

  3. Very impressive. I love the way she layers her designs – with many elements inter-related. And the letterpress technique that she uses is unique. Thanks for showcasing Carina.

  4. Carina created the most adorable birth announcements for my daughter! She is so creative and great to work with.
