Christmas comes early this year! Yes, you read it right in this post’s title: I designed a Holiday greeting card. Although the real design-part of this postcard took place several months ago, sometimes the process from sketch to finished product takes a little longer than you imagined. And although I usually design only one Christmas card each year, this was one of those ideas I simple HAD to get out of my system.
For this postcard I was inspired by the well known Christmas carol ‘deck the halls with boughs of holly‘. Especially the ‘falalalala lala lala’ part. Because it’s only a small lingual step from ‘lala’ to ‘llama’. Add some illustrated caroling llamas and silver foil stares et voila: a holiday greeting card is born!
Wish someone Happy Holidays by sending them this greeting card AND giving them a free musical earworm. Win-win!
It measures 10,5 cm by 14,8 cm (4,1 inch by 5,8 inch). It is printed on a heavy cardboard and it has a matte finish. Due to the foil finish, the card feels nice and smooth and is best written on using fineliner instead of a ballpoint.
