The most beautiful Christmas cards of 2021 (by illustrators)

by Judith Joosten 26 Nov 2021

Do you also enjoy sending a card to someone at Christmas? I must honestly say that it has often slipped my mind. I'm so late in buying tickets that I end up giving up. Oops, not this year ;). I thought it would be fun to share beautiful cards from a number of illustrators, so that you can purchase a nice set from a maker. Maybe so personal?

In any case, here's a mountain of inspiration! Cards designed and printed by Dutch and Belgian illustrators and creatives.

Christmas card set by Esther Bennink

I saw this set last year in Jenniefromtheblog's vlog. And they are so much fun. These are wonderful winter scenes that you wouldn't want to walk into, right? Lovely by the fireplace, that's so nice! Esther is selling two different sets, and they are both so beautiful!

A nice set of Christmas cards from PIET and KEES

Iris makes the most beautiful illustrations, as well as this beautiful set of Christmas cards. I love the birds with their hats <3. A fat robin is also such a beautiful winter bird.

Beautiful set of Christmas cards from Muchables and NienkeSwapt

How wonderful is this beautiful set from Muchables and Nienke? The set consists of ten postcards! All cards are A6 size (10.5 x 14.8 cm) and printed on 330 gram matte paper. The cards are printed on both sides and there is also a nice mini illustration on the back of the cards.

Christmas greenhouse by Drawing-Ing.

What a cozy winter greenhouse, the deer will eat the pretzel, or leave it hanging ;). Inge makes beautiful illustrations, this card also tells a wonderful story!

Beautiful Christmas cards by Appeloogje, Marjolein Heij

Marjolein makes beautiful illustrations, do you immediately feel like hugging that penguin? The cards are printed on beautifully structured paper, which looks very much like watercolor paper. The collection is a lot more extensive, and it is also nice that it is a double card. If you need a lot of space for your Christmas wishes, that's ideal :).

East west, Christmas best. When drawing this house, Lisanne Ooijevaar from Crealis imagined herself in the winter-decorated North Holland village of De Rijp. As an illustrator and letterer, Lisanne enjoys creating personal house portraits, decorated windows, walls and fine cards.

This tile wisdom just popped up while I was drawing. The card comes with recycled kraft envelope, FSC certified paper and minimal use of plastic.

Christmas cards by Mir design

This beautiful Christian Christmas card with the beautiful lyrics of the well-known Christmas carol is a beautiful message to send at Christmas. The text comes from the Bible “And when they came into the house, they found the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell down and worshiped Him.” (Matthew 2:11a, ESV)

Christmas card by Anna Sieben

Anna is a medical illustrator and a big fan of everything that has anything to do with biology. In her shop she sells a selection including cards, paintings and hand-painted wooden Christmas baubles. In any case, these dogs would like to wish you happy holidays.

Christmas card by Nadie van Wijk

Nadie wanted to make a card that didn't scream 'exaggerated' Christmas (because there are also people who might not be as happy with it), so a bit more subtle! Hence the swallow with mistletoe! Nadie illustrates much more, and works from Enschede.
These Christmas cards are to order as a set of 5 (incl. Envelopes) or per 1.

Christmas card by Jetske Kox

Jetske wanted to do something with nostalgic Christmas baubles. For example, a bird with a sprig tail that you can clamp to a branch, you know? 🙂 In the end it became four cards with balls and a bird on them that you can also cut out. You will receive a nice nostalgic shiny gold string, so you can cut them out and hang them in your tree! It is printed on Paperwise paper and comes with a recycled envelope.
Shop the card here , there are several designs available, possibly also as a set.

Cute Christmas card by Petra van Bereguod

Petra has been making illustrations and animal portraits for 5 years now under the name Studio Bereguod. The materials she prefers to use are watercolor and colored pencil.
Each illustration is created layer by layer. She starts with watercolor paint and then adds accents with colored pencil. Every year Petra makes two Christmas cards. This year even three different ones!

Christmas card by De Zeijverige Bij (Debora)

Debora, 28 years old, lives in a small village in Brabant and is the Zealous Bee. The cozy teapot looks nice. The tea house is illuminated, there is snow and there is even a cookie for tea. Happy Holidays.
