Design | Holiday Card 2020

2021 has finally arrived! One of my small wins in 2020 was actually this holiday card design and I’ve been meaning to share it but the holidays got a bit crazy (lots of sewing gifts and baking cookies!).

I have to credit my husband with the idea of adding hand sanitizer and a mask to the traditional milk and cookies by the fireplace—it’s such a small detail but people loved it!

I usually only do hand lettering for our holiday card, but I couldn’t let that idea go and decided to try my hand at illustrating it in Procreate. It took a good amount of time and it’s certainly not perfect, but I feel like it’s good for my skill level, and I’m quite proud of it.

The interior had this hand lettering that I did as well that I’m quite happy with. I’ve been trying to challenge myself to hand letter more serifs rather than scripts and I was happy with this attempt (but I still need to practice more!).

I hope everyone had a safe holiday and that your new year is off to a good start!
