Christmas cards and washi tape
I am so excited to share with you this years Christmas card designs which are now up in the shop. I had such great feedback from people when I shared them on instagram stories, which I really appreciated and it was great to know that people like the designs too. I always find it so weird having to start thinking about Christmas designs so early in the year, but more and more I am learning how important it is to get organised with designing collections in time and especially when you factor in printing and packaging etc. You literally have to get those Christmas tunes playing in the summer months to get everything in place in time!
All of the designs were originally created by painting with ink, and then all the elements were scanned in and put together on the computer. The cards are A6 and printed on really beautiful textured card. You can't always see the texture in the images, but trust me it feels so nice and luxurious. They come with kraft envelopes - and each set has 4 designs and in the pack you get 2 of each - so 8 cards in total. The packs of 8 cards cost £10.
The first pack above has got a simple green and navy blue colour palette. I like the colour palettes for my card sets to not be too overtly Christmassy but just have a subtle nod to the festive season.
The second pack which is a Christian set (each card has a bible verse on the back) has a very typographic design, I decided to go a bit bolder on the colours (but again not too obviously Christmas colours) and I love how the coral red really pops against the rest of the colour palette. It looks almost neon!
I have also brought back the set of cards that I designed last christmas as they were very popular and I really liked them. Again very minimal and subtle with the colour palette. This set also has matching gift tags available in the shop which is a nice added detail when putting your gifts together.
Another two new products that I am really, really excited about are these washi tapes. I have never designed washi tape before, but I have been wanting to for a while and so decided to take the plunge just in time for Christmas. I really love how versatile washi tape is. It is great for making envelopes look beautiful, but also for putting prints on the wall, or other DIY projects around the house. I also really like using it with some kraft wrapping paper to make pretty presents for people.
I hope you enjoy the new designs. I have a few other things in the works too, so hopefully there will be more products in the shop before Christmas is upon us. Also, if you sign up to the mailing list in the box below, I will be sending out a discount code to subscribers on Friday. So keep your eye out for that email in your inbox and happy shopping.
