Joy to the World Holiday Card


The Holidays are here! Tonight is the second night of Hanukkah and there are only 17 days until Christmas.

There's still time to finalize your holiday cards if you haven't yet.

As the holidays draw closer, we're reflecting on Christmas / Holiday cards past.

This custom holiday card was hand illustrated, foil stamped in gold, and backed with a photo. 

The cards were paired with a kraft envelope with a foil liner (gold) and foil return address (red).

Harrys 2014 Holiday Card - Artwork

joy to the world – Inspiration is everywhere


It all started with Three Dog Night’s, “Joy to the World” – specifically these 4 lines of lyrics:


“Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me”


We loved the concept of Santa ice fishing in the North Pole and that’s what we went for. The illustration was drawn on paper and then scanned and finalized on the computer.


We added a small menorah in the scene to represent Hanukkah. The front of the card was flat printed on photo paper with a foil overlay in metallic gold that reads, “Love, The Spiegels”.
