So I was browsing around someecards.com enjoying a giggle while reading some of the holiday greetings posted by users and the authors there, but the one thing that struck me, were the horribly hilarious 90’s clip-art graphics used with the various sayings there.
It’s a very funny and successful jab at the silly greeting cards and party invitations we used to make on old-school Apple’s (Macintosh) or the graphics found in the Microsoft clip-art gallery with their archaic Office software (I wonder if Microsoft still has this gallery in use???). It’s a modern yet contradictory combination: old graphics with thoroughly current written revelations about the human condition.
I took some of the funniest contradictory holiday greetings and threw them together with some slightly more modern graphics and, voila, I have holiday greeting cards to email ;) I used Serif Publisher 6 (no longer available, version 7 now available) and Adobe PS to stitch together my weird [remedial] artwork and reworked the writing with new graphics.
I used dafont.com’s DK Sleepy Time font to add some pizzazz. I have no intention of profiting (the banter/sayings weren’t written by me) from any of these strange graphics so feel free to have a laugh, share and pass them around if you wish. And, Happy Conflicted Holiday Greetings for 2013! ;)
