Christmas Card Designs

A selection of my favorite Christmas designs from my years at DaySpring.

One of the most important features of a Christmas card is its “bling.” Card shoppers tend to first pick up the cards that beckon them with glitter, shiny foils,  interesting ribbons and diecuts.  As a designer, my job was to create a visually appealing card with as much apparent process as possible (while keeping costs down, of course).

This first card is one of my favorite examples of this. The foil used here has a light grain applied in 6 different directions, giving it the appearance of plaid. It catches the light and looks significantly more valuable than a regular, flat red foil.
