Ah, Christmas card season is upon us (believe it or not) and while a lot of us really really want to send out super cute cards and love receiving them, sometimes you just do not find the time. We personally have been trying to set up a date with Tracey Buyce to do our card shoot for weeks now but between ballet rehearsals and sports and birthday parties and family visiting we have rescheduled now like twice? Maybe three times?
The other day while skimming through Instagram, a super cute illustration caught my eye from Sam Sidney showing an original family portrait as a holiday card. I fell in love (and after reaching out to her I learned she went to Skidmore, how funny is that?!).
That got me started on looking for even more illustrated family holiday cards. No dressing up, no posing, no wrangling of kids unwilling to sit still even for a second to capture a sweet image, sounds pretty good right? Plus you get the sweetest custom illustration of your smiling family, and you can keep one each year as a special keepsake! Click through to see some of my favorites, and click the photo below to visit Sam Sidney on Instagram to see more of her work. Some of these cards need to be ordered ASAP to be on time for holiday delivery, so chop chop if you are loving this idea as much as I am! xoxo
