I’ve launched a brand new Christmas card collection! It’s called A Taste of Christmas.
If you are a small business owner like me you will understand how we all have to start thinking about Christmas in the middle of summer and launch in the autumn to make the most of the festive season, and coming up with Christmassy ideas while the sun is still shining can be difficult! Luckily I came up with the rough idea of my new collection earlier this year while it was still chilly in spring and I have thought about it for months. A few weeks ago I felt ready and jumped in and started planning.
I knew I wanted to do a food-related Christmas card collection because I wanted to evoke a warm festive feeling, and the foods we eat in the festive period give me that warm fuzzy feeling instantly. There are also scents that give me that feeling – oranges, mince pies, cinnamons, fir spruce, vanilla, and so on.
I ended up with three different designs around this food / scent theme and these are Winter Fruits, Seasonal Scents, and Holiday Treats. I absolutely love each of them, especially Winter Fruits because it was the first design I created for the collection. When I create a collection It’s always the first design I am most proud of and I think it is down to the special moment of realisation where the design process is underway and going in the direction I hoped for.
I hope you will agree that my new cards radiate the festive feeling we get run up to Christmas and that all these three designs make a lovely collection.
Can you tell how excited I am for Christmas?!
