Forgotten post - tree card



Oops, I just found some draft posts that I forgot to blog last month, this is one of them...

Of the non-handmade Christmas cards I got this was my favourite as I'd been hankering after it in the shops. It came from Carla, my friend who's French Wedding I was at in September.

I like Tord Boontje but sometimes the edges on his images are a little 'male' and computer generated looking, not as soft as I'd like to see. I want his pieces to still look like his sketches even after they have been computerised.

So that's why I like this card so much, it looks more organic, even though I'm sure it was finished on a computer for the laser cutting. And I always love things with layers and 3D effects like this cause they look so good with a tea light SAFELY popped between to create light and shadows.

So it is the white part that's cut out, I assume? I really like that.

Hi Gina :0)

Loonytick-
Sorry the photo quality not great, blogger keeps shrinking things then I have to stretch and they get all crappy. The part that is laser cut is the gaps between the larger white branches. Through those gaps you can see the 2nd and 3rd layers of the card. It gorgeous.
