For 2016 I went all out for my annual greeting card design when I envisioned an entirely new take on the traditional greeting card—one that would double as a holiday decoration!
My vision was to design a card that was modern and grown-up yet feminine and fun, while incorporating non-traditional holiday colors against a black sky. I was also inspired by Victorian era aesthetics and super-skinny retro NYC apartment buildings.
Many hours were spent conceptualizing, drawing, and prototyping this design—even taking into consideration how the shadows will fall when everything is assembled and how the cards and stickers can be used separately yet remain cohesive.
Printed on satin-coated stock, this design collection includes the house greeting card, a connecting “stage” with an icy pond and stone pathway, a card containing scene pieces and stands for cutting out, and a sheet of six matching stickers which can be used with the recipient’s own holiday stationary. In addition, four other coordinating stickers were designed to use on the backs of the envelopes when mailing.
This birthday party invitation was designed for fun and is completely different from my usual work. Bright and colorful, it presents the perfect style for a girl’s birthday party. The invitation can be customized and coordinated with colorful envelopes.
Inspired by the true meaning of the holiday season, this minimal design features three stylized trees atop a snowy hill with an ornate pattern. Featuring my own hand lettering, this card is modern and elegant with a matching envelope and sticker. Printed on satin-coated stock, the final cards were embellished by hand with three star crystals to top the trees.
Inspired by a single strand of pearls and a snow globe, the 2014 holiday season was all about simplicity and elegance. Printed on satin-coated stock, the final cards were embellished by hand with small crystals and coordinated with a designed envelope and sticker.
A modern snowman brings magic to the season, complete with a custom designed envelope and sticker. This card’s illustration still makes me smile and remains one of my favorites years later!
This colorful and modern wreath happily brings an upbeat and joyful message to the recipient, complete with a matching return address label and sticker for the back.
