I have witnessed many gift givings where vacation tickets were tucked within a holiday card.  I wanted to create something more appropriate for the event!

Handmade card on acid free, fluorescent white paper with deckle. Ilford Galerie Pearl paper used for the printed photograph. Both cardstock and photograph is printed on an Epson professional photo printer with Epson archival ink.
INSIDE: Enjoy the flight

Card dimension: 5" x 6 7/8" Envelope dimension: 5 1/4" x 7 1/4"

Each card takes approximately 30 minutes to make, from printing the cardstock and photos, to cutting apart the pieces, signing the backside of the photos and cards, and placing the pieces together to present the final product. All photo dates and locations are recorded on the backside of the card.

Option: Use the card as a back-matting by cutting the card to the preferred framing size while keeping the photograph attached in it's place.

* Avoid displaying photograph outside or in direct sunlight to preserve color luminosity for years to come *
