Rowen & Wren Christmas cards – Oh Christmas tree design

As if a year has passed by from last years ‘Winter berries’ design for Rowen & Wren. We’re very excited as the new range has only just launched called ‘Oh christmas tree’. Which took it’s inspiration from our very own christmas tree – the runt of the litter, left and unloved, we took him in, gave him a name (Mr T) and made him look beautiful. He only had a few branches but he did indeed look splendid : ) ‘oh christmas tree! oh christmas tree! How lovely are your branches’. Little did he realise he would be the star of the show : )

The starting point – Beautiful inspirational mood board & direction from Lucy at Rowen & Wren.
Some initial scamps and workings out
Paper delivered, screens etched and ink mixed. Ready and raring to go : )

First pass, two more to go
Mr traditional tree…
…and co-ordinating wild wood design
Can’t get enough of the matt gold foil, just a little flourish : )
finishing up – trimming, folding, die-cutting and assembling, a highly satisfying process : )
Initial wrap proofs have arrived, looking brilliant and spot on for colour continuity.
The finished wrap and tags together, a new adventure!

The final designs, packed and ready for off. A fine choice of card stock from Fedrigoni. Thank you Mel for all your help
Farewell Lillapa, Hello Rowen & Wren and your new home.
