The Challenge


The holiday season is almost here! We have come up with some new Christmas ideas at Paperlust and we would love for you to be a part of it all this year. We want this design challenge to be all about fun family photos, family + dog photos or just stay-at-home personalised cards that spread Christmas cheer whether you’re socially distancing or with your loved ones. For this design challenge, we have decided to combine our die-cut shapes with the classic folded Christmas cards and we want to see you create creative designs with clever wording on them. The requirements are to design 1x folded personalised Christmas card using family stock images, and you can submit up to three designs. A mood board along with our design templates and instructions are also provided in the designer kit for you to get started. Good luck & have fun!
