Holiday Cards (Guest Post by Andrea)

One of my holiday rituals is to write cards while watching Love Actually and sipping mint hot chocolate (or tea). It’s the perfect way to create a holiday ambience and to enjoy crafting heartfelt notes.

One Canoe Two is one of my favourite card lines. I adore the script, muted colour palettes and the painterly feel of the cards.

I love Lichia Liu’s card line, Gotamago, featuring her beautiful watercolour illustrations.

Carolyn Suzuki, a California-based designer offers up a line of fun, graphic cards. The fronts and backs of these cards often differ, with complimentary designs. I like the bold black & white and black & gold combos – a little something different for the holidays.

What’s not to love about Hello!Lucky? These letterpress cards are well-designed, unique and all-around fantastic. They’ve also got some super-sweet city specific cards featuring iconic architecture and holiday themes.

Another awesome letterpress line is Egg Press. Their hand drawn aesthetic is so appealing and distinct, with cards that are sweet and quirky. Some of the cards are reminiscent of textiles, with lovely repeated patterns.
