My Holiday Card 2013

Happy holidays! Our holiday card this year is, of course, travel-themed. My husband wanted to incorporate our new home (Mt. Vernon) into our card to share with our family and friends. I decided to draw a line drawing of the Mt. Vernon monument, and only add color to the holiday string lights that are added every December. A simple hand lettered salutation at the bottom finishes the design.

I also chose to use a festive red ink for the envelope calligraphy. I’m really happy with the result and I am looking forward to designing more travel themed works.

Happy travels,
