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.
