Merry Christmas!

I really, really enjoyed my holiday card exchange this year and have received soooo many beautiful cards from fellow Minted designers. I thought I’d share the Christmas card I designed and sent to friends and family for anyone who missed out on the mailing.

This was printed at Minted, using their curved frame die-cut shape on signature stock. I also ordered the white envelopes, gold foil liners and took advantage of Minted’s free recipient address printing!

The back of the card included a cute little illustration I made since I didn’t manage any family photos this year. You can also see below that I went a little crazier than usual with the envelope decorating, but it was fun to add some extra special touches.

Holiday Cards

As much as I love designing holiday cards and other lovely paper products, I’m also a musician…primarily a singer these days. In the spirit of the season, I made a little video for your listening pleasure. Here’s my version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, first made famous by Judy Garland. It’s one of my favorites! Guitar accompaniment by my musical partner in crime, Steve.

p.s. Sorry the video quality is so dark and lousy. We didn’t light it well and ran out of time for more takes. Hopefully, we’ll nail it next time!
