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!
