Christmas/Holiday Card Design

Red Bean Design  - This is not strictly a holiday card but the deer motif makes it an alternative to the norm of red and green with gold. Fawn Notecards

 Tracy Chong Etsy - Snow Crystal Pop Up Card

A Beautiful X’mas Is What You Make Of It , a collaboration between designer Jonathan Yuen and B.G. Tan. contains a deck of four cardshoused in a custom designed package. Pieces from each card can be plucked out to form reindeer, Santa Claus, a Christmas tree and even a snowman. The cards are deliberately designed as a blank canvas, to encourage the recipients to use their imagination and creativity to personalise it.

  1. Good to see such original Christmas card designs.
    (especially the 'A beautiful Xmas is what you make of it' lovely)

  2. I know this is an old post, but the blue and green Hannukah card with the menorah and the Partridge in a Pear tree card were both done by Byvik Ink. Could you fix this when you get a chance? thanks!
