Holiday Cards

Here’s a little look at the holiday cards we’ll be sending out this year. Thanks to Shutterfly, this is the one holiday to-do I am on top of this season.  For this year’s card I chose to illustrate our little family of five…as getting a photo of all of us together seemed like an impossible task considering three of our five members are pets. However, that would be hilarious to attempt…maybe next year!


On the front of the card I illustrated the Brooklyn Bridge to pay homage to our borough of residence and drew each of us below the bridge, set up at a riverside picnic. And how beautiful are the gold foil stamped details?! I went with a black background for the illustrated side to allow the gold foil to really pop (Note: While the gold foil option was my preference, red stamped foil options are also available).  

Christmas Card-detail

For the back side, I chose solid black as I plan on handwriting personalized messages on each card and will also be adding some festive details to the envelope lining, both of which I plan to do with a gold metallic pen.  And for the finishing touch, I happened to find some vintage NYC stamps that I’ll be using as postage.  I am really looking forward to sending these out this year and feel so accomplished having already ordered them. As extra incentive for you to also get your holiday cards ordered early, you can get 10 free cards from now until October 20th – just use code GREETINGS at checkout.

Thanks for taking a look at them! Now on to the next holiday to-do!
