I did wonder whether it is too early to start talking about holiday cards, but then I’ve already sold two in my Etsy shop, so it seems that some people are preparing early this year. Hopefully this year the postal system will be better prepared too!
And the holidays are not just about Christmas. Diwali is coming up at the beginning of next month. So there are just a few weeks left before the Festival of Lights kicks off! I’ve become more conscious that we all celebrate the holidays in different ways and want to make sure I start catering for a wider range. If you have any specific requests then please let me know on Instagram or Facebook.
This is the first Diwali card I’ve designed but I hope to add more over time.
Hannukah is also celebrated before Christmas is, and I’ve added a Happy Hannukah card to my holiday range too.
Even those of us who celebrate Christmas don’t all celebrate it in the same way. Some are more focused on the religious side of it, to others the most important thing is meeting up with family. And then there are those of us who get really excited about the food 🤣. Here’s my (somewhat tongue in cheek) nod to my favourite festive nibble…
I do of course also look forward to spending time with family and friends! 😁
As well as the new additions I’ve mentioned already, I’ve also created a few new holiday designs to add to last year’s favourites. Here’s a small sampling, but you can view the full collection of holiday cards in my shop.
Holiday cards for a special someone
A good proportion of my holiday cards are aimed at a special person in your life. I realise (and am happy that) a lot of people buy a selection of charity Christmas cards to send out. But it’s sometimes nice to acknowledge your favourite person (or people) with a card that is chosen especially for them. Here are a few for significant others and best friends.
Custom cartoon portraits
I am also still doing custom cartoon portraits, either as Christmas cards or prints to frame and give as gifts. These are great for your other half, or for grown up children, parents or grandparents. It’s worth ordering these early if you want them. They take more time and if I get too busy closer to Christmas I’ll stop offering them.
Other holiday cards
And finally here’s a selection of other holiday cards in the collection. I’m offering bulk discounts so that the more you buy the more you save. You can mix and match 3 or 5 different cards, or otherwise order any one design in larger numbers for a bigger discount.
