Media Used To Create: Colored Pencil, Pastel, Pencil, Watercolor

Description of the process :
I illustrated & designed this greeting card while working for Image Craft, Inc. as one on their team of designers. I also reworked it into another card in their Blossom Valley card line, below :

Note : Image Craft, Inc. (Ontario, Canada) closed June 2006 with the bankruptsy of its parent company, Paramount Greetings (USA).  The rights to the artwork I created for Image Craft has been transfered to their new owners… Hallmark. So if you happen to see this design on a new Hallmark Card…give me a buzz :) Thank goodness I’ve kept all the original artwork!

Thanks for your inquiry about whether I do small runs of my Canadian Christmas cards… I’d really love to help you out, it’s just that particular card (with all the animals and the flag) has been sold and the license doesn’t allow me to print & sell cards myself! I’m not really sure where you can buy them specifically… I believe they’re in some dollar stores in Canada. Sorry I couldn’t be more help :(
