This is one of the most elegant and thoughtful Christian cards I’ve ever laid eyes on. It couldn’t have been easy to lay out the font this perfectly to create such a nice tree. I imagine there was a lot of enlarging and shrinking of words and individual letters, as well as tilting and rotating, and re-layering. The curly q’s and loop-d-loos, in particular, are masterfully laid out. And then the red dots–don’t they mimic hanging balls in such a wonderfully understated way? I also really love how the pot of the tree is hand drawn and I love, love, love that this is a live tree–see the dirt there? This is also a very green card! I also love the sky blue background. Finally, I really love the particular lyric Carrie chose to illustrate–it’s such a lovely song and a beautifully expressed sentiment.
