IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN
Hello guys...it's Loren here. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone. It's been a long year and I have lots to talk about. But for now I wanted to announce that it is that time of year again and you know what that means? Well, it's time for Loren's Annual Family and Friends Christmas Greeting Card Design for 2015! This is a tradition that I have been creating every year for over 22+ years!
I have created fold up cards, ornament cards, tin ornaments, foam snowflakes, pop-up cards, hanging cards and so on. There is a wide range or theme's and materials.
Most of the cards are completed and some have been shipped out. I have posted this snippet photos because I don't want to reveal the design until everyone receives theirs. This years design was a difficult one to choose and I went back and forth for a couple of weeks before I settled on one.
Every year, I say this will be my last but I inevitably feel compelled to keep the tradition going. It now has a mind of it's own and more people are added to the list every year!
I struggled with a creative idea and every so often, I believe I come up with a good one. Most of my friend's and family love receiving their card and wait for it to arrive. As my brother Ken says, "it's not Christmas until Loren's card arrives in the mail. It's just like the windows in Macy's in New York City. It prompts the city to start celebrating. That's what Loren's card does!" Nice compliment from my bro. Anyway, coming up with a unique design every year has been a real challenge. Every year has to be better than the last year. I hope this one is!
So for now, you can see the snippets of the design and I will post the front and inside of the card when everyone receives theirs.
Cheers and Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone!
Oh, P.S.-- I will be carrying all of my card design's online and for sale for next Christmas. There will be a great bunch of designs that are unigue and clever, too. I will post them here on my blog when they are ready for sale. Take a peek back to see all of the designs I have done over the years. Possibly, you will find a design that suits your taste perfectly? Then you can head to my etsy shop to purchase them. ENJOY!!!
