Retro Christmas Card in Calligraphy


Since I know these have now been mailed, I can finally show you a custom retro Christmas card I designed for one of my sweetest clients.

The client ordered the cards and envelopes with liners online from www.cardsandpockets.com and had them shipped to my studio.  This allowed me to match the colors.  I have to say, the quality of the cards and envelopes was very good for the price.

The lettering and other design elements were created by hand using a round brush and gouache paint.

It was scanned into the computer and placed in the card designed in Photoshop.

They were printed on white 6″ x 6″ folded cards.

Since they live up north, adding some snow was a must!

Next I’ll be creating cards for a Holiday Card exchange.  Need to get those out by Dec. 12.  Better get back to work!

Have a Tenacious Tuesday!

    Fun & beautiful! Brush lettering is one of my favs, and I just can’t seem to master it in a way that I like (more practice on my end would probably help!) Thanks for sharing!

      It is a lot of fun. Like anything, practice does help it flow more easily. Have you tried just using Faber-Castell Brush Markers to play around with? It’s an easy way to practice without getting out your paint and brush.
