My, it’s busy at DYP headquarters this month. But that hasn’t stopped us from producing a fabulous new range of Hygge Christmas cards. And in the spirit of Hygge it’s come about with a lovely collaboration with a great friend.
If you’ve not yet heard of Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) it’s a Danish word that describes simple pleasure, comfort, and good times. It’s all about being with friends and family, cosying up, happiness, kinship and simpleness. Well, running a greetings card company is not always simple and cosy, but we do thrive on friendship and family. So we were thrilled when a friend got in touch with a proposal.
The fabulous papercutting artist and all round good egg called us to see if we wanted to collaborate with her. How could we say no? Her designs are amazing, and we couldn’t resist. This is a first for DYP, and we’re really excited about it.
Melissa Holmes of Holmes-made Papercuts is a self-taught papercutting artist. She creates her delicate works of art using paper, fabric, watercolour and a scalpel. Formally a journalist, Melissa shares our passion for words, and combines those with her love of natural surrounds. Her work often includes flowers, architecture, quotations and typography. She produces special personalized commissions for clients, as well as teaching workshops.
Hygge Christmas Cards
We have worked with Melissa to create a gorgeous range of Hygge Christmas cards. The artwork by Melissa is inspired by her papercutting and is printed using luxury archival ink on luxury 400gsm paper. We think you’ll agree, they’re a little bit special.
