My great friend, Emily Beavers asked if she could use me for my designing abitities and I much obliged. Because for 1) she always lets me put my own flare on things and 2) I knew that it would turn out pretty awesome. Don't mean to toot my own horn, but - toot! toot!
So after a few emails and what's app messages we came to the conclusion that the card was going to be based around "Joy to the World & 2013" Emily really wanted her card to be based around travel because she had a HUGE change in life last July when she and her husband packed their bags, their sweet doggy Stella and made the trek to Shanghai. So naturally - she wanted her card to really be about where they have been and where they are now.
So, I think this is a perfect example of adding your own "swagger" if you will to your own card. Because honestly - people spend a lot more time looking over cards with pictures or something personal. Rather than opening - seeing a Target card and then a signature. BOR-ING. Yes, yes, don't yell at me - I understand some people just don't have the time or cash flow for a personal card. But, there are a plethora of other venues you can take to making your Christmas/New Year card personal. I personally appreciate the typed out letter letting of what each and every person in the family is up to - including the dog!
So, without rambling too much. Here is Emily's "Joy to the World & 2013!" Let me know what you think of it! And of course, contact me for your 2013 Christmas/New Year cards. Never hurts to start planning early, right!?
