Christmas is coming up and I’m hard at work making plans.
This year, my kid decided that she didn’t want to take Christmas photos so what’s a mom to do?
I hired a professional illustrator to create our Christmas card.
My only instructions were to make it look like pop art.
That’s right, I wanted a Lichtenstein-esque Christmas card.
And that’s exactly what I got from the artist (the talented Michael Samuel):
It’s cartoon meets pop art meets graphic novel.
And I love it.
I was so inspired by the card, that I even had the back side designed by the same artist:
The resulting card is spectacular.
I bought matching green envelopes with the polka dot/tree inserts to keep with the theme.
No one likes a plain white envelope, right?
Of course not.
I will be sending out approximately 90 Christmas cards this year to family and friends.
I can’t wait for the reactions to come rolling in!
