What is a very helium holiday, you ask? It’s nonstop Christmas music, homemade peppermint sweet treats, a silver + blue-themed tree topped with Pee-wee Herman, and, of course, handcrafted greetings. We absolutely love the holiday cards Kelly designed for helium this year and thought you would enjoy a little behind the scenes peek at their creation.

Naturally, the process started with a some notebook doodling, which led to a sweet winter scene accompanied by a simple hand-written message. Kelly originally thought about hand-painting the scene on each card and then realized that was a whole lot of crazy. Luckily, Lumi.com makes great custom rubber stamps. With the whir of a scanner and a few quick clicks we had our very own holiday winter wonderland stamp AND an accompanying logo stamp.

Like a little elf, Kelly got to work assembling the components of each greeting card – a silver card base, topped with kraft card stock, and the final navy layer with the stamped design and messaging. To wrap it all up, each card was mailed out in a silver envelope with an appropriately themed snowflake postage stamp!

We just love creating thoughtful, handcrafted greetings!
The helium team wishes you and yours a very special Holiday.
