Christmas Cards: Kyle & Faye 2015
I definitely enjoy the chance to do some screen printing completely for my own use, since it is an opportunity to push my limits and experiment without an actual deadline. Christmas cards are one of those times of year where I take a chance, even though the holidays get busy and I’m often scrambling to get our cards printed and in the mail.
For this year, I’d had this idea of a Scandinavian style in my head for quite some time, but I also knew I wanted something really bold with multiple colors. The final design fit the bill, bold and graphic (and with metallic gold ink, of course). I was happy to send these through the mail, although I wish I had made more to send out!
