Christmas In July

I can't believe July only has five short days left. Where is the time going?

Thankfully we still have lots of summertime left here in California. Even so, here at 2 Hearts B 1 Designs, we are already thinking about Christmas....yes, Christmas!

I wanted to share with you some inspiration we are using to create patriotic-themed Christmas cards for a client this year.

To get our creative juices flowing, we've been browsing Pinterest as well as some of our favorite holiday creations from the past (more posts on these as the holidays get a little closer!)


At first thought, it might seem a little difficult to combine the ideas of Christmas with patriotism, but in reality, the two concepts come together quite beautifully!

In the design process, we've found it inspiring to combine the rich reds and greens associated with Christmas with the deep navy of the American flag. 

I am also loving the idea of adding a soft, natural element with a light khaki or taupe color.

I'm thinking Kraft paper will be an ideal color and texture for this project.
