Every Christmas, I really enjoy designing our Christmas cards and I always look to my son Atticus for inspiration. This year, he is fully aware of Santa Claus but also the fact that Christmas is Jesus' birthday. Our Christmas cards usually try to portray Atticus' key interests that year, so this year, it's how much he loves celebrating people's birthdays and his obsession with spelling and letters.
With my new die cut machine, I made several series of cut outs that say "Happy Birthday Jesus". It was really important that the words has a physical presence with Atticus or the other subjects we thought of. There were enough good ideas of where to photograph these letters that we decided to photograph a series that we will reveal each day this week until Christmas. I hope you enjoy this cover image and the Christmas song for today. If you are curious to see previous cards we've done, click here.
