Spiraling! This w-fold kirigami pop up was my 2018-2019 holiday card. It’s possible I am obsessed with Celtic spiral patterns. I have been busy getting this year’s cards out the door but, wanted to share this one with everyone. May your holidays be bright and full of cheer!

Fishhugger acrylic stand-up logo – a quick photo prop for my friends the Fishhuggers. The logo design is based on a petroglyph thought to represent an ancient fisher.
