I am so pleased to say that my Christmas cards for this year is finally ready to buy! For the last 4 weeks, I was having problems with two different printing companies that I lost excitement in my new Christmas designs and felt deflated. However after a few tears, I kept going, looked for another printing company, waited patiently for delivery and finally, I was happy with the result (third time lucky!). The print quality is excellent and paper is gorgeous! Hooray!

I painted these festive designs with gouache. I was experimenting with it for a bit before I started and thought it’d be fun to try out different medium for this year’s Christmas paintings. Being not totally comfortable with this particular medium, it took me a while to learn how to use it and finish painting them, which I really enjoyed. The handlettering was done with a brush pen.

They are available to buy as a pack of 43 packs (12 cards) or 5 packs (20 cards) over at my shop.

I try to shop small every Christmas so feel free to leave your links if you are also doing Christmas cards. And if you could give feedback on my new cards, that would be lovely too!

If you enjoy my illustrations, please consider supporting what I do!

    I think these really suit gouache :) I love the cute reflections on the candy canes and the hand lettering is super sweet too!

      Thank you Fee! I really enjoyed using them but I am not sure if I will use it more in the future. Let’s see!
