From Our Home to Yours: Holiday Greetings 2009
Happy New Year and my undying thanks for coming here and being part of Halfland's creation.
Long time readers here will know that Each year I design and fabricate our original holiday card in a limited edition of 100 for family and friends, many of whom I've met right here.
I thought I'd share about the making of this year's card on Jaime Zollar's Paper Forest site as it was entirely based on the most luxurious paper I've ever worked with. Thick as white whipped cream, and as flexible, without damaging, as if felted wool. I used no printing of any kind, no pieces to assemble, no moving parts, no hand-cutting, nor the usual 100's of hours these tricks required in past years.
Thick Italian Fabriano Medioevalis Stationery (and a good friend, Halflander, with a powerful laser cutter; Mark Fullerton at Precision Graphic Systems) bring this year's folk-style snowy village to life with its message left in crunchy footsteps.
