Your Style, Your Way

This month, from October 1 – 21, you can get a 10% savings on all sizes of cards, invitations, and calendars. With these products at such a great price, it’s the perfect time to get going on all the holiday projects you have planned! And remember, in addition to the winter holidays, autumn is a wonderful time to send gratitude and cheerful greetings to those you love!

To help you get started with your holiday greetings, Kari Pieratt designed a 7 x 5 gray-scale invitation, “Holiday Greetings Design Map,” template 113183. We gave Kari’s design map to all of the Studio Creative Team members and asked them to maintain the same text, photo, and embellishment placements, but to select papers, embellishments, word art, and even photos of their choice to showcase the wonderful variety that can be achieved with our design map templates.

Since this was a holiday greeting challenge, our designers chose from many of our fall and winter holidays, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s. If you were to use this design map, what would you do? Would your personal style be more traditional like Cassie Balser’s design, more contemporary like Kelsi Kunz’s design, or somewhere in between like Michelle Bell’s design?
