Christmas Cards 2017

A couple of weeks ago I launched my new Christmas cards! This time I have two sets of four different designs.

When I started thinking about my designs for this year, I wanted to pay homage to my first Christmas designs from 2014 and give them a similar feel – the pastel coloured background in particular, which was the most praised feature at that time. The actual illustration on each design is different from the old ones but the style is similar, and better after three years of practice! The most similar design is the robin one, which I repainted because I felt it needs to be updated.

I didn’t plan to do two sets of cards originally, but one day I spontaneously painted abstract trees, which became my Christmas Forest design. I was focusing on green and blue colours and realised it would actually work well as a Christmas card so I carried on painting with more colours and created another three designs with an abstract theme.

I think I ended up preferring this second set in the end but I do still love my first set with more realistic paintings – so I printed both of them!

I also ordered special luxurious gift tags using elements of my abstract Christmas card set, which are available to buy as a pack of four. What makes them special are that they are folded gift tags with rounded corners. I added beautiful different colours on the back to go with each design. I also tied them with pretty green/white and red/white baker’s twines. All the Christmassy feels!

Which design do you like the best? I am loving Christmas Forest, or maybe Mistletoe most of all so far.

P.S. all my cards are also available in packs of 4 and 12 cards! Why not have a look at my Christmas shop?

I launched my new Christmas cards last week! I am so excited to be selling Christmas cards for the first time, for the past few years I’ve thought about selling but I didn’t have a courage to do so. To be honest, I won’t be selling this year if it weren’t for Aneurin and my family’s support.

Despite the fact that I’ve used up a lot of materials and time designing my Christmas cards (lots of trial and error), I priced them very affordable and I don’t want my customers to pay for expensive cards on the top of their to-buy Christmas shopping!

Four cards of different designs in one pack is only five pounds! You can also buy larger packs of 12 (£12), 20 (£18) or 40 cards (£32).

Each design is professionally printed on 250gsm gesso A6 card and comes with kraft envelope as well as protective cellophane sleeve, as always.

I love the addition of hand lettered “Merry Christmas” and bows – they give a lovely festive feel to my designs!
