Since my cousin went off to college, my family likes to send her cards every or every other week. I had an idea for a card - but before I drew it, I thought, "What if this was animated?" The story wrote itself, and I began work on making this short video card.
I love silly little stories, and it was so much fun working on this.
The only part from the storyboard I changed in the final card was "Hope your holidays are a blast" to "Hope you have a blast," since it was no longer the winter holidays by the time I finished this.
