Wow. We are almost in the thick of the holiday season now aren’t we? Only a couple more weeks until Thanksgiving and then on to the December holidays!
If you’re looking for fresh holiday card ideas, may I suggest having a custom illustration made? They make for completely unique cards — unlike anything else you’ll see in your mailbox. There are so many fantastic options out there I thought I would gather together a few of my favorites for you to browse through, in hopes that you’ll find something perfect for your family.
You can start with the delightful and completely customizable card featured above from the Etsy shop Ello There. Each character is custom designed down to hair color, style, background, outfit, and even pets! So fun, right?
