Folky New Year
Folky and festive celebration of the new year.


We wanted to convey a natural, friendly and organic feel to the greeting card. We chose certain visual elements such as pine wreaths and christmas baubles, but we illustrated them with a different approach. We chose an earthy christmas color palette, and replaced the classic red with magenta (to give it a modern twist) and used water color as the medium to achieve this folky theme. The idea is to print this card on a 300 gsm textured paper, in order to imitate the medium in which the watercolor is painted, and convey an even more natural feel to the piece.
