Christmas pattern

Since christmas is coming up I was inspired to create a christmas-y pattern :) In the end I created a christmas card and a thank you card as well, so that I could use two different colour palettes ( I even tried out another two as well).

Lets start with my two main colour palettes:

And this is how they turned out in Illustrator using the blob brush tool as showed in the class:

And the almost never ending work of arranging them into a pattern looks like this:

Here is the christmas card I created - "God Jul" is Swedish for Merry Christmas

Finally I want to show the different colour variations I tried out for the pattern. As I think many others did, I spent a lot of time on this, colour is so much fun!
