5x7 Hand lettered holiday greeting card

5x7 Hand lettered holiday greeting card - student project

For inspiration I was looking to modern interpretations of the vintage packaging style discussed in this course. I didn't think that I would be able to pull off the filigree and flourishes of the older examples, and wasn't sure I wanted my project to look vintage.

I ended up experimenting with some decorative elements and liking the results.

For the inspiration/mood board, I was drawn to the color schemes in these examples and both the rough loose execution or tight clean lines of each example.
