Our Top Picks From Coloring Cricket
As a child, Christine Laursen Welch needed to look no further for inspiration than above her head—the vibrant skies of the Northern Sierras provided a backdrop that was simple, striking and serene. It's this natural elegance that she incorporates into every Coloring Cricket design today. The Coloring Cricket card line, which she designs exclusively for Wedding Paper Divas and Tiny Prints, showcases Christine's clean and elegant aesthetic, mixing the traditional with the unexpected while ensuring that each card becomes a celebration of the moment for both the sender and the recipient. Borrowing from the same beauty and simplicity that filled her childhood, Christine loves to add a twist to each design, giving every card a classic look that is highlighted by Coloring Cricket's own brand of vibrant sophistication. After earning her degree in graphic design, Christine also began working in the wedding industry, where she witnessed firsthand how the right design can make an event truly special. Christine currently lives with her husband and son in Iowa, drawing inspiration from an ever-growing list of hobbies and projects, including floral arrangement, calligraphy and crafts.
“I draw inspiration from a variety of sources, including my toddler, nieces, nephew, family and friends. These differing perspectives allow me to keep things fresh by sharing and looking at my designs from new angles.”
A TINY FLASHBACK:
“I was a huge Bob Ross fan, and I watched his TV show all the time. My parents bought me his paint kits and tools, and I found myself covering canvases in paint—along with the rocks in my backyard.”
ON WHAT MAKES A MEMORABLE CARD:
"Every year I receive a birthday card from my grandpa. It brings me joy to see what type of card he chooses and the personal message inside—I try to bring that warmth into the cards I design."
