Tad Carpenter Christmas

Each year Tad Carpenter does a great job of coming up with a unique set of Christmas cards. He always uses a slightly offbeat, atypical palette for holiday, which in my opinion, makes the cards more fun. This year he’s used a bright tomato red, navy blue and white on chipboard; and they come with two sets of envelopes in navy and orange. I’m loving the pattern detail on the back of each design. In addition to his cards, Tad’s also created a set of “Holiday Homies“, four limited edition figures silkscreened on chipboard. Each one comes with a stand, so they can be displayed as part of your holiday decor.
