Make sure the Christmas card designs you send this year stand out from the crowd by picking something really special.
In our book, if you’re going to go to the time and trouble of sending a card, it should be worth while. This is the time of year when many small and independent creatives and makers depend on us to buy their designs so let’s support them. Because it’s so much nicer to give and receive a well-designed card that has been made with care isn’t it? Clearly we can’t all afford to send out hundreds of handmade cards to everyone on our list. But don’t most of us have a few very special people on our list who we’d enjoy sending something unique and special?
There are a lot of card makers out there, as you probably know. So, to make it easy for you, we’ve selected a few of our favourites, all made in Britain by hand-picked designers.
Box set of Cosy Christmas cards by Katie Leamon, £12 for 8.
Christmas Bulbs Card by Heather Alstead Design £3.75 each, £8.75 pack of 5 cards, £16.75 pack of 10 cards.
Holly Jolly Christmas cards £14 for 8 by The Lovely Drawer
Originally hand illustrated with watercolour, ink and a whole lot of love. Each design is printed on ribbed texture 280gsm card stock, left blank on the inside for your own message and comes with a corresponding kraft envelope.
A set of 8 A6 cards with envelopes, made up of two of each of the designs pictured.
Rabbit Christmas cards by HAM, £3 for one or £10 for 4
Love the distinct and graphic designs of HAM cards. They have spent time carefully selecting the perfect matt textured stock to use for their luxury greeting cards – all of which are meticulously crafted by printing specialists in Kent. As soon as they are off the press Jo and her team add a ribbed kraft envelope and cello bag, both of which are also made in the UK.
