One of our favorite Christmas customs, above all the rest, is sending and receiving holiday and Christmas cards. For paper enthusiasts like us, a tradition like this is one the highlights of our year, as we get to enjoy and experience so many creative and beautiful paper and printing designs. The custom of sending Christmas cards is thought to have started in the UK in 1843 along with the birth of the public postal service but has since spread across the globe, with billions of cards sent worldwide each holiday season. As it’s impossible for us to send an actual card to each one of you, we want to wish you Merry Christmas by sharing one of our favorite holiday card designs of the season.
May the holiday season end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year. Here’s wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
One of our favorite holiday card designs this year features lovely botanical illustrations with minimal geometric forms, printed on beautiful grey Esprit de Nature Ombre 350 gsm with a Glam Snowflake 120 gsm inlay. Both Esprit de Nature (previously written about here) and Glam (previously written about here) are exclusively available at Europapier.
