Let’s go old school, shall we?
Do you still remember the good old days when, around November, people were busy choosing the nicest Christmas cards to send to friends and family via regular post? As a kid, I loved picking out specific cards to match the recipient, and I also loved opening the envelopes that I received. It has been a long time since I actually did this, and I regret that I didn’t think of picking up the old habit this year until now.
In case you also feel like doing something with Christmas cards this year, we have a really nice giveaway for you this week. Thanks to PJ McQuade of CastleMcQuade on Etsy, we are giving away 4 packs of handmade Star Wars Christmas cards!
Each pack contains 5 cards each, three of which you can see in detail below.
“A smoldering Lando under the mistletoe. Interior right reads “You’ve Lando’ed on the Nice List this Year!” Interior left features a silhouetted Cloud City.”
“Salacious Crumb wearing Shristmas sweater holding his candy cane. Interior reads “Have a Salacious Holiday Season” Interior of the card has a silhouetted Ubrikkian Minstrel-Class Space Yacht (Jabba’s Ship in Jedi)”
“Tauntaun catching a snowflake. Interior reads “HOTH-Y Holidays!”
Interior left features a silhouetted Probe Droid.”
Mind you, these are not ordinary Christmas cards. They are clay coated and weigh and feel really good. Each card measures 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”.
Individual cards cost $4 each, and a pack of 5 costs $15. You can purchase them from PJ’s Etsy shop, and discover more of his awesome work there. PJ also has a web site, if you want to learn more about him and what he has created.
Whether you are into Christmas cards or not, if you are a Star Wars fan, you might want to keep these cards for yourself.
