This year, as I have done for the past few years, I made our Christmas cards. A while back I had posted a little preview:
Needless to say, the preview picture was taken at the start of the process and I am so excited to share with you the final card....a number of steps later....
....oh yes folks, I had fun with this one!!
I had seen a handmade pop-up card at some point last year and made a mental note of it, thinking it could be fun to try. When it came time to brainstorm ideas for Christmas cards, I thought of the pop-up idea right away and that was that....I set out to put it together. :) Starting with some sketches of little snowmen, those developed into one snowman and one snowwoman (my husband and I of course!;) ) Just having the two figures seemed not quite finished so I added the third....a snowdoggie! (very closely resembling our husky mix, Vedder!) They were all hand painted and the remaining parts of the cards were printed and assembled. (note: with a TON of help from the husband! Thank you Mark ♥)
So, anyone have any suggestions for how this design can be used for other holidays/events?? I'd LOVE to try them out again---Valentine's? Birthday?
