Artcraft Company Nutcracker Card

Tags:

These sweltering months may not put you immediately in mind of the holidays, but they are coming nevertheless, with all of the magic that those entail. This holiday card designed and printed by The Artcraft Company evokes that enchantment by putting this charming nutcracker front and center. Bursting with life thanks to a sculptured emboss, the card has a delightful handmade look and feel to it – something most clearly displayed in the pencil-like coloring of the face. The foil stamping catches the eye but does not overpower the illustration – each complements the other beautifully.

The pièce de résistance, of course, is the way in which the holiday felicitations are revealed in the nutcracker’s mouth when you give the tab at the bottom a gentle tug. (And yes, The Artcraft Company does produce other holiday cards for corporate use, too.)
