In this week’s bumper two-week edition of Grazia, we’ve shown some of the most fun, chic and darn right crazy Christmas cards we’ve received (yes we’re talking to you Elizabeth Hurley). Well today our postie arrived with the last batch, and there are some crackers in there. Not actual crackers sadly, Christmas cards. But they’re still pretty cool.
First up is Moschino’s uber cool Venetian mask card. And yes, we’ve taken it apart and tried it on, it is an ACTUAL mask. We’ll be hanging onto that one once the tinsel disappears in January.
Next up, is Harrods. Oh boy do we love this one. How did Harrods guess that our absolute weak spot is indeed, pop out cards. It is great. The cover is a demure couple, decked out in festive finery. Pull the side tabs and BOOM. A fully festive scene. We’ve got a sports car, couples dancing, presents under the tree. Absolutely gorgeous.
The cutest card we’ve received is from jewellery designer Katie Hillier. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. So sweet and the colouring-in didn’t go outside the lines once. Nice one Katie.
Oh boy did we scream when we opened the Dior one. We expected greatness, and we were not disappointed. We turned over the hard cover to reveal a luxuriously gold interior which pops out (and we’re screaming again) to a beautifully stencilled D, I, O and R. DIOR. J’adore doesn’t even cover it.
Louis Vuitton’s beautifully simple card warmed our hearts, especially as we opened it to discover it’s a charity card. We LOVE a charity card…tis the season and all that.
Designer Charlotte Taylor’s little card features one of the adorable little penguins that we fell in love with from this season’s collection. Unlike the little guys on her silk blouses, this one has a Christmas headscarf on. So, so sweet.
This purple beauty came from PR company Modus Publicity. We’ve seen a lot of stencilling this year, and we whole-heartedly approve. This one is oh so chic.
Last but not least, is the main man, Manolo Blahnik. A holly and berry covered heel drawn for us with a lovely message. If we could draw our cards would look like this too, maybe.
