Christmas Cards

With my guidance, David made some Christmas cards for his family. Here's my favourites that he made for his Nana and her sister. The windows were made of vellum (I couldn't find the acetate!!) and the scenes light up with a lamp behind them. The tree and bricks were printed directly onto the card and are wrapped around onto the backs. The windows were cut out, a scene was stuck behind the vellum and finishing touches applied. The top pictures are without a backing light and the bottom ones show them in exactly the same place, but with a lamp behind.

What a clever idea and brilliant effect. Well done David (with your help of course!).
