INSPIRATION: The colour theme was inspired by vintage holiday cards…the retro look of cards in my youth with creamy white snowy backgrounds, all those mint and turquoise shades, red and orange and hot pink, sometimes even with silver glitter as highlights. I imagined a crew of elves, hard at work making toys, and baking cookies, and feeding reindeer, all dressed in bright vibrant jumpers to keep the holiday spirit alive and thriving.
