I feel incredibly inspired and impressed by our holiday assortment this year. The tremendous, innovative talent within the Minted Artist community never ceases to amaze me! It’s my honor to reveal our third-place winner for the non-foil category of the “Making Spirits Bright” Holiday Photo Card Challenge.
3rd place: 2016 Holiday Card Photo Card Challenge — Non-Foil
Congratulations, Angela Marzuki! Angela is from Saint Charles, Illinois, and has been a part of the Minted community since 2011. Not only is she a brilliant designer, she is an active supporter of her fellow artists, having given more than 1,000 peer critique comments over the years. Angela won first place in our 2012 “Joy to the World” Holiday Photo Card Challenge, and she definitely did not disappoint this year!
Angela’s design, “Freshly Framed,” stands out from the pack with its arresting diamond shape and asymmetrical botanical frame. It is a fresh, modern take on a traditional holiday card and exemplifies the high caliber type of risk-taking design we are looking for at Minted.
Please note that we will keep the Challenge page hidden until after our last winners’ announcement. At that time, you will be able to see your final score and ranking on the Challenge page.
Next, we’ll announce the second-place non-foil winner in the Holiday Photo Card Challenge. Find out the exciting news in the Minted Community > Winners section of Julep.
