This was our 2018 Christmas card – the year my daughter spent a good part of her time at her job at the insect museum putting spider eggs into individual cups; and coincidentally I was bitten by a spider and spent 3 days in the hospital. I tracked down spider stamps especially for this card.
First the envelope. You should read the word “terrific” with heavy sarcasm and an eye roll.
This is the front of the card.
Flip it open and pull out the star/tree/web.
Pull up on the string at the top to reveal the greeting, and a surprise spider hanging inside.
These were my prototypes. The star itself came together quickly but I went through several choices for the center pull tab.
Some photos of my dining room table as I was working on the cards.
