Anyway, I am curious if it will lead to something. Competition is strong! There are amazing stationary designers contributing to the Minted collection, and my experiences are from veeery long ago, so I am feeling pretty rusty. But ok, I wanted to "do the Season" to learn and to get into stationary design again, and that definitely happened. My discovery of the season is that I enjoy doing expressive handlettering in brush and ink!
Sooo … here's some of my fave last cards – with handlettering! This time no Christmas, but New Year's greetings, all submitted to the "Cheers to a New Year" challenge on Minted. Minted is looking for photo card designs, i.e. cards that are personalizable with the customers own photos and text. All photos that I used for my designs are courtesy of Minted.
Like always, votes are very welcome! Thank you! Please just click on the title of the images, that'll lead you directly on my submissions on the Minted page.
Love this one for it's simple, reduced and elegant look.

Phew, I have been fighting with this design … it went through many stages! I wanted it to be fun, playful and expressive. Definitely not too clean as real life is messy! But on the other hand not too cluttered … I was aiming for a light and fresh look. Finally now I am quite happy with it :-)

Feel free to have a look at all of my submissions (just 7) on my "Voting now" page here.
Ok, and from now on I'll happily think about icecream, swimming and summer – good bye winter, good bye Holiday Season!
