have a holly jolly christmas

I can't believe Christmas is 20 days away.
But then again, I seem to repeat myself every year. Time is just a strange thing. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to ever get used to it. But nonetheless, I managed to design a Christmas card this year on time. It was originally created for Little Band of Characters, a lovely blog where my cards were featured for a giveaway. I had the great joy of sending one set of 6 cards out to Montreal, and in the process of advertising them, I've sold a few more sets as well.

I've grown to love creating illustrations by hand, and later scanning them. It brings such an organic touch to a very electronic process. And decided to bring the cozy and charming feel of wreaths into these cards, along with a fun greeting line from a Christmas classic we all know so well. Let's not forget the elegant gold touch in the envelopes, because really, what is a holiday season without gold and glitter?

At the moment, my Etsy shop is unavailable. I am freshening up my name/shop/website so I can launch something brand new and exciting in the new year. So, stay tuned! In the meantime, you can email me at info@melody-hansen.com for any requests, comments, or to say 'hello'.
