Petite Lemon Christmas Cards & Trend Boards

Trends come and go, but I feel that some seem to stay longer than others. One trend that seems to keep going and going for the last few years are the Metallics! I see them everywhere, especially in card designs. Plus with the recent addition of REAL gold foil on all of the card sites like Shutterfly, Tiny Prints and Minted, why not add gold foil to everything! It’s totally hot!

I thought I’d share with you one of my mood/trend boards that I did. This one is Metallics.

And here’s a few cards based off of that trend. I don’t think this one made it. But there is a card that was based off of this one that has REAL GOLD FOIL! You can see it here.

And here’s another layout that I tried, on a folding card.

This one has the Mercury glass as a full background. It was a tricky texture to recreate! Thank goodness for photoshop!

Here’s metallic paints. Paint textures are another hot trend this season, especially watercolor!

This one is blue foil, which is still a metallic.

Metallics are also hot with glitter, not just foil textures.

It’s always fun seeing your designs on an ad while browsing Facebook! I’m right in the middle of a big Christmas push with Shutterfly. I sometimes think I can’t draw another snowflake! And yet, I keep drawing them and thinking of new ways to do them! I can’t wait to show you the ones I’m working on now, but won’t be able to show those until they’re up on the site. But for now, here’s some cards that I worked on earlier this year.

I just love designing baby cards! Especially after recently having a baby myself! I can hardly believe that he’s almost ONE! I’ll make sure to post at least one picture from his birthday! (most likely on Instagram) As we’re busy moving, so things on here may be a little trim…

Baby Announcement/Christmas Card 2013

I figured if I was going to send out a Christmas card, I might as well as send out a Birth Announcement too! I did have a hard time designing my own card. Why is that? Maybe because I’ve been on Maternity leave or maybe because it’s always harder to design for yourself. I would have loved to have gotten gold foil on the card, but gold colored ink will just have to do. Happy Holidays friends! (I’m just a little late on this one! Ha ha!)

DAY 19: Kids Reindeer Card with CandyCane

If you’re anything like me, you still haven’t handed out Christmas Cards to your kid’s friends…right? I hope I’m not the only one! Ha ha! Well, how about printing off a few of these. All you need to do is print, cut, and add 2 candy canes per reindeer. It prints 3 reindeer per page. Hope you enjoy them!
