2017 Holiday Card Picks, Roundup No. 2

I’m always a little bit sad to wrap up my holiday card picks, but shipping deadlines are calling, and I want to be sure that you can pick up the cards that you’re craving in time for holiday mailing!

There have been so many delightful holiday card designs to choose from this year, and I love that there’s so much variety in style. There really is something for everyone. I was a big fan of the soft and muted color palettes this season, and I always have a huge soft spot for anything retro-inspired. The hand lettering and foil stamping trends continue to be hot, hot, hot this holiday season, and you know I’m lovin’ that, too!

My last bunch of holiday card picks for this season includes a little bit of everything, from gilded greetings to sweet lettering and illustration, sweet touches of pink, and adorable critters. Have a look:
