Sugar Plum Christmas Cards

December -- the entire year actually -- has been a blur. As we try to make sense of the very first year of Gerald & Joan, we wanted to share a few of our latest projects. This Christmas card was custom designed for my sister-in-law's family. She wanted a flat card with rounded corners, matte finish and a family photo on the front. Beyond that, she didn't have any requests. I hand-drew the "Merry and Bright," and then added the red, green and white "sugar plums" across the front and back. We added just the tiniest filter to the photo to enhance the warm glow of the photo. Everything about this project says happy and blessed -- which is exactly how they are in real life. We were really pleased with the results.
