I have had a client place a large Christmas Cards. I prepared some samples for them to choose from. I am posting the two cards which were not chosen. I will post their selection later once the recipients have seen the card.
This card is a photo of my own Nativity. It is the Avon porcelain one which is simple and elegant. I photographed it with a black velvet backdrop. In post production I added the bokeh in the top left hand corner then added the greeting as well.
It was printed on photo paper at 3.5 x 5 inches. It was trimmed to 3.5 x 4.75 inches to leave an even border all the way around on an A2 card. It was mounted on a heavy white card with a customized sentiment on a quarter sheet adhered on the inside.
I am really happy with the way it turned out.
I am working on the order and it will several days to get it done.
This the second card presented.
It is a photo I took early this year of a friends stained glass Nativity set. I applied a filter to give me the silhouette in black you see on the front. The silhouette was placed in front of a piece of alcohol ink background which coordinated with the Tempting Turquoise card stock. It was printed on photo paper and trimmed to 3.5 x 4.75 inches. The frame was printed with I did the credits on the back of the card.
Again, a customized insert on a quarter sheet insert.
Really happy with this one as well. They may become my Christmas card for this year.
