Becky and Paul’s Christmas card arrived today! Paul is Mike’s brother, and Becky is his long-term girlfriend. She’s a graphic designer and artist, and every year she creates the most beautiful Christmas card. She has also sent us incredible drawings for other special occasions, including a painting of our home, a drawing of Ally, and a picture of Mike and me for our wedding card. I save them all, of course! I’ve framed her larger drawings, and I keep her greeting cards in a keepsake box.
I thought it would be fun to feature her Christmas cards here on the blog! Bex deserves all kinds of accolades from me, because she created my logo for my business. She works for a London design firm, and has her own website: http://www.bexglover.com. If you’re looking for a talented artist, please drop her a note.
I love this card… as Mike can confirm, I’m always asking him if we can have a baby polar bear. Why does he have to say no and be sensible all the time? I took photos of Becky’s card, as well as some from previous Christmases. Thank you very much, Becky!
This reindeer is a three-dimensional overlay.
This one is made of plastic and the snowflake is carved into it. I have no idea how she did that.
Edited to add: I found out that Paul cut Becky’s design with a laser. What a team!
This one is made of wood. I love her ideas!
Finally, this one isn’t for Christmas, but it’s one of my favorites. It’s a birthday card for Mike, who is a robotics engineer.
