After many years of giving out the same boring christmas cards each year, I decided to design my own with a slight twist. I wanted the card to be something more special than the usual throw-away folded images and be more personal to my own interests and styles. The aim of the design was to create a retro feel print that could be easily folded from flat into a 3D present whilst allowing the recipient to feel some of the excitement and suspense that is felt with a real christmas gift.
