day 7 – Christmas cards

ah, the annual Christmas card. this has become kind of a big deal for our family. we put a lot of effort into the overall look and feel of our Christmas cards each year. being a design nerd, i get so excited about creating these cards from a completely blank canvas. taking the photographs, designing the layout, choosing the typography. i love every single bit of it. and watching it all come together from a sketch in a notebook to the final print is very rewarding.

this year, we decided to keep it simple, and go for the classic, rustic look. i finished the cards this week, and per usual, we are just now sending them out a few days before Christmas. so, here are our 2012 family Christmas cards.
