NEW | Christmas Wood Card

NEW IN THE SHOP

I did not grow up in a country that celebrated Christmas. For me, it's not about the Christian aspect, but the family traditions that are treasured during the holiday season. Green trees, pretty lights, and love for all mankind - it's such a pretty holiday! I first saw Christmas in all its glory when I was 18 living in Amsterdam. It was also the first time I saw snow falling - it was so quiet! - At the time I was going to work before sunrise and coming back after nightfall so the only light source I saw were the twinkling fairy lights strewn across the shops, boulevards, and courtyard trees. I was enchanted, and dreaming of a White Holiday Season ever since. 

Each card is made of wood with a beautiful grain, sanded smooth, and hand-stamped on both sides: One side is stampted with the poem Dreaming of a White Christmas, and the other with my antlers illustration. The cards are sturdy and fit an A7 envelope. 


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas 

Just like the ones I used to know 

Where the treetops glisten, 
and children listen 

To hear sleigh bells in the snow



I'm dreaming of a white Christmas 

With every Christmas card I write 

May your days be merry and bright 

And may all your Christmases be white  


If you want to write your own holiday missive you can also choose the ANTLERS wood card instead, which is only printed on one side. 

XOXO
