Some jobs are on an illustrator's bucket list from the minute they graduate art school. For many, creating stamps for the Royal Mail is pretty high up that list, and it's one that Helen Musselwhite was delighted to tick off this year.
Conversations first began in June 2015, a full 18 months before the stamps were released, when The Chase first called us and asked if Helen would be interested. The painstaking process saw Helen create beautiful 3D paper cut designs of a snowmen, a robin, Christmas puddings, stockings and a tree. Each image was then photographed to create the image for the finished stamps.
Helen herself described it as "one of the most important and favourite jobs of my career to date".
