50 - Christmas Cards

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Every year I make something a bit different for the Christmas cards that we send. This year I decided to do a card/gift combo and created a recipe card that had a cookie cutter attached.

We sent the posted ones in a clear box to give the postman something a bit different to look at and the hand delivered ones were wrapped in baking parchment.

The magazine which inspired the slightly Mad Men themed one is an original from 1958. I love the simplicity of old ads and tried to capture that feel in the card. With the other I went for a similarly aged notebook style, feeling that if ever the notebook has its day, it is now with Christmas "to-do" lists.

What do you think?
